Originally ancient Chinese sailing ships introduced to Vietnam in the 14th century, junks have since then become an integral part of Vietnamese culture. Undoubtedly, the best way to explore Halong Bay is by these traditional vessels, which have been changed into convenient one- or two-night passenger boats.

Boat sizes vary from 10- to 24-cabin vessels. If you want a much more intimate experience, private boats are also available options. From the junk, travelers can get to the water and navigate the islands by kayaking to get access to the concealed caves and less known bays. While being on board, tourists can enjoy freshly cooked chicken curry, grilled spicy squids and cocktails at sunset on the beautifully polished top deck.
