Oriental Bridge Cruises in Halong Bay
Deluxe Private Junks


Cruising in a private junk presents enormous advantages: the junk is yours alone, her smaller size allows her sailing in channels which larger boats cannot use and stop on small deserted beaches, she can spend the night in an isolated bay when collective junks have to stay in the same larger one, the service onboard is better and so is the food.

If, after your cruise in Halong Bay, you wish to spend one or 2 days in the magic « Halong Bay on Land » of Tam Coc (Ninh Binh), please refer to the paragraph Combination Halong Bay/Halong Bay on Land (Tam Coc/Ninh Binh)- of the previous page Oriental Bridge Cruises in Halong Bay - Cruises on our own private junk Oriental Sun www.orientalbridgetravel.com.com/halong-oriental-sun

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
