“ Cruising along Halong Bay on an Annam Junk is the experience you’ll never forget. Exquisite décor and wooden carvings brilliantly reflect the cruise’s traditional style. While providing standard facilities, the thing that makes the cruise outstanding is the cozy and intimate ambiance onboard. In addition to this, this is among a few ships that offer sailing routes to both Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay.”
