An amazing experience in Halong Bay...

Katrina B., United Kingdom

Details
With over a decade’s experience in cruise operation, Indochina sails both meets and exceeds international standards of service and quality. Setting the precedent for overnight cruises on the bay, Indochina Sails is widely acknowledged as the first and best choice for discerning travellers. Its six newly built vessels are built along the same lines as those that have been sailing the bay for hundreds of years, lending the cruise an atmosphere of time-honored tradition and a feel of authenticity. Instead of detracting from this, the modern touches of contemporary comfort and luxuries enhance this ambience, and together the dichotomies of tradition and contemporary styles forms the ultimate vessel for your journey through the World Heritage listed beauty of Halong bay.

My experience with Indochina Sails was excellent. We had a lovely time on our 2 night, 3 day trip. The only disappointment was Agoda overcharging significantly for the trip - Indochina Sails own web site is cheaper - book there or use Handspan (even better deals!)
