Oriental Bridge Cruises in Halong and Other Bays
Cruises on a Deluxe Collective Junk


On April 2012, all the owners of collective junks have received from the Government order to repaint the hull of all their junks white. Therefore, the photos of the exterior of the Bhaya and Indochina Junk which are on this page of our website are not accurate any longer, but the interior of the junks remain the same.

If our private junks are too simple for your taste, we can also make a reservation on a large deluxe collective boat, the Bahya Classic managed by Bhaya Cruises, a company of impeccable reputation.

If you prefer a smaller deluxe collective junk, we propose several junks managed by another very reputable operator Indochina Junk.

Attention : Starting 1st April 2017, a fee to enter the bay, imposed by the Authorities, has to be added to the rates of those junks : 8$ per person for a 2-day cruise, 10$ for the 3-day ones
