Welcome to Ha Long Bay

Treasure Junk

 
treasure junk boat

3 star

  Sailors have hoisted the sails and swabbed the deck. The Treasure starts its motion, spawning its way in beautiful emerald waters. The vessel is a stylish junk crafted by traditions and equipped with comfortable and modern amenities. Its name, Treasure, refers to the natural beauty of its environment. Something fragile and extremely rare that we must preserve and protect as a legacy for our future generations

Cruise Responsibly

                                         boat plan

The Treasure is proactively acting for better cruising practices in the region. We are not organizing an environmental revolution (we would love to, but let’s be realistic for a while), but acting at our scale to minimize our social and environmental impact. We also raise awareness among clients, boat crew, local authorities and floating fellows from the archipelago.

Cruising on less traveled routes, hiring and training local people, buying exclusively local fresh products, organizing yearly clean up tours in the area, promoting the practice of kayak, supporting a big environmental project in Vong Vieng floating village, informing and giving advices to our clients, working in close collaboration with local authority on sustainable development issues, refusing to participate in spoiling the caves and other natural areas (the way some caves are exploited in Halong bay is an insult to nature preservation and a slur to visitors’ dignity)... are some of our actions and initiatives for a more responsible tourism. 


The treasure is a one of a kind vessel in the whole Halong archipelago. Based on a solid structure and re-designed in a wooden junk style. It is stable, able to navigate in any seabed of the region and can easily face the rough if needed.

Its giant sails may come as a support to the engine if the winds are with us, they are part of the folklore and give a nice sensation of embracing the big outdoors [editor’s note: absolutely no boat in Halong bay can sail only without the engine running] .

The Treasure is a large vessel, very spacious and comfortable. You will find yourself particularly cozy on it.

Food and Beverages

The Treasure offers a long drink list featuring softs, beers, spirits, wines, cocktails, mocktails, smoothies... to slake your thirst and set the aperitif up or accompany a romantic dinner.

Our chef and his team are devoted to offering you some of the most reputed cuisine of the region. The selection is wide and ingredients always local and fresh. Seafood-based, but not only, the menus are well balanced. Vegetarian and kids can be catered for. We strive to make each meal a colorful event for both eyes and papillae.
 
 
 
Features and Activities
On all of its itineraries, the Treasure offers some kayaking. Real expeditions to lagoons, creeks and floating houses, around the huge standing karsts formations, always away from any other boat. We use Necky kayaks, high quality equipment, imported from Canada and carefully maintained.

To entertain your cruise, vegetable carving and cocktails classes are available. Sometimes upon request as it depends on the number of people on board. Nice wooden board games are also available.

The Treasure features a very large sundeck that you may enjoy anytime of the day. With a cup of coffee witnessing the transient serenity of the bay early morning; relaxing in the sun with a privileged view at the limestone labyrinth; celebrating with a drink this once of a lifetime moment when the moon rises over the karsts.

Day 1: Hanoi - Halong Archipelago
Meals: lunch and dinner | Accommodation: Treasure junk

Depart from Hanoi at 8.00 for a 3.5 hours drive to Halong City through the Red River Delta. Upon arrival, get on board of the Treasure Junk. Start cruising from Hon Gai pier to the boundaries of Halong bay while lunch with fresh seafood is served (vegetarian and kids menus available).
After lunch, just make yourself at ease and relax. We are slowly getting off the classic cruising routes, far from the usual clichés of this busy tourism spot. Limestone rock formations will parade all around us for about 2 hours before our first stop.
We reach the perfect spot, remote and scenic, where the waters of Halong and Bai Tu Long hit and wave together. Let’s get ready for serious things. Swimming suits, ok. Kayaks and tender boat, ok. Paddles and gears, ok. Let’s get closer to the water and explore the bay in depth.
After one/one and a half hour kayaking, we get back on board to refresh and start the aperitif on the sundeck. The boat cruises to its secluded anchorage area. Dinner is served either inside or outside depending on weather conditions. Overnight on board in a cozy air-conditioned cabin with en-suite bathroom facilities.

Day 2: Halong - Hanoi
Meals: brunch | Accommodation: N/A

We will be back at the pier about 11:00 am, and driven to Hanoi with an expected arrival time about 4pm. The day will be short so let’s wake up early to take the maximum of it.
Coffee, tea and cakes will be served from 6.30am. Wake up smoothly while witnessing the silence of beautiful misty bay. A 30-minute Tai Chi session will be organized, energize your body and soul or just allow yourself some farniente time on a sunbath with a cup of coffee.
About 7.45am, we hop on bamboo boats to go visiting a secluded floating village surrounded by the mountains. We spawn our way between numerous floating houses and small rowing boats that serve the everyday life as vehicle, itinerant shops, fishing utility, sometimes overnight shelter.
Back on treasure before 9am, we start cruising back to the pier. From 9.30am, a brunch will be served. Take a last glance at the rocks, standing still as the eternal guardians of a kingdom, we are about to reach the pier.
Once on land, we sit in a small café to wait for our overland vehicle.
12:00: Rejoin the car return to Hanoi.
16:00: Arrive Hanoi. Drop until your hotel. Finish unforgettable Halong Bay Trip with Treasure Junk. Good bye & see you again!

Day 2: Halong Bay kayaking
Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner | Accommodation: Treasure junk

The breakfast will be served from 7.15am. But if you like, we invite you to share a cup of tea or coffee from 6.30am and participate then in a Tai Chi session before breakfast.
Around 8.30am, we board a smaller boat. It takes us even farther from the touristy area, to the hidden nooks of the archipelago.
A whole day of fun and relaxation. More kayaking, more swimming, more sandy beaches, more floating houses, more local cuisine, definitely a “cruise++”… The exact program depends on tide and weather conditions but we guarantee that we will make this trip extension worth. Lunch will be served on the support boat.
The guide will lead you back to the Treasure Junk in the mid-afternoon. Time to refresh and to make yourself cozy on the sundeck. Dinner will be served again either in the dining room or on the deck. Second night onboard.
