Overview

An ideal opportunity to get away from the busier parts of Halong Bay and experience some of the lesser visited areas. Created by Nature over 500 million years, Halong Bay is a 1,553 sq. km bay containing 1,960 islands and islets that jut imperiously out of the water and tower over the cruise boats that ply their trade here.

Some parts of the bay get very busy, but the Dragon Legend Cruise Halong takes you to Bai Tu Long Bay, which is a little known bay within a bay. Your floating home for this trip is the Dragon, a traditionally built wooden junk. The interior design is a beautiful representation of Vietnamese cultural design.

From the superbly appointed cabins, to the fabulous restaurants and well stocked bar on this modern boat, everything is tastefully decorated in a style that hints back to ancient Vietnam. The 24 cabins are wood panelled, spacious and beautifully finished. With modern fittings sitting well alongside traditional old culture.

The talented chef serves amazing Vietnamese cuisine in either the air-conditioned restaurant or al fresco, on deck. Whilst bartenders create delicious cocktails for you to sip as the sun goes down on another memorable day. Everything about the Dragon Legend cruise Halong enables you to enjoy nature in style.

The 5-star grade cruise

The cruise was beautiful, the cabins are luxurious and the rooms (bathroom and bedroom) offered breathtaking views of the outside. Meals and activities offered (kayak ride, tai chi course, cave visit, swimming) were perfect.
The explanations provided by a very friendly English-speaking guide were interesting.
The ship alone deserves a 5-star of review.

Sublime escape in Halong Bay

Varied program, many visits and activities: Canoeing, isolated sites, cave, beach, floating village, pearl oyster farm, barbecue on the beach, meals on the deck. 
Comfortable rooms. Attentive staff. We enjoyed Tom Cruise. Meals were very good and hearty.
A beautiful memory forever. Bravo

Unique moment

The cruise was very well cared and the service on board was very good (equipment of rooms: shower + bath with view on the sea, very refined meals on board and extremely attentive staff). In particular, the guide responsible for activities (kayak, tai chi, visit a cave, …) was very nice and excellent in English speaking. Among the activities we preferred the most the kayak trip, where we have approached the islands a little closer. Last plus point: tranquility. Indeed, we met no other boat (seemingly it had the exclusivity of this bay). In short, even if the price is higher than other cruises, the benefits are at the premier level.

Wonderful!

We chose The Dragon Legend because its capacity of welcoming a large group of people, and it was an excellent choice.
The crew on board was very nice, with full of attention to us. The meals on board were varied and delicious. The Chef offers culinary specialties from North to South Vietnam. The cabins were very nice, with a large window, the bedding is remarkable comfort !! The bathroom was large, with a corner bath and a shower.
Our guide was charming, and activities on board allow you to spend good moments (kayak, night squid fishing, tai chi lessons in the early morning …) Wonderful!

Superb

Superb junk with a very nice room with bedding exceptionally cozy! All the details of the decoration are refined.
Better to stay two nights onboard. it will allow you to make a meal in a cave the second night, which you will keep an extraordinary memory.
Absolutely a good trip.

Not regret a thing

The boat was very beautiful, spacious and comfortable. The most impressive thing was the large windows in cabin and bathroom, you can hardly miss a splendid view (not even when you took shower!). Overall, we did not get bored for a second. The delicious meals were served with care and leisure activities (kayaking, beach, visit a cave) were truly the moments of relaxation. We absolutely never regreted booking this boat to enjoy the 2D1N trip of beauty, luxury, calm and pleasure …

Very nice discovery

First of all, the room amenities were really comfortable!
Second, the meals served at the table were plentiful and very good in general. 
Third, the guide on the boat was very professional and friendly. They were even available at midnight for our sudden request.
Nothing to complaint. Just try it once your own to see.

Perfect in everything

Dragon Legend did not receive the good reviews for nothing. Great service – especially from Tom Cruise – but also the rest, like Tony, really delicious food, super comfy beds. Hardly stress and time to recover. Can only recommend it!

Nice and easy trip

The cruise was great, so as the crew. The food was always served in the form of 7 courses and very well prepared. The activities like 2x kayaking were entertaining and also the BBQ on the beach was very good after visiting a stalactite cave. Above all, we were convinced by the fact that Indochina Junk helps the fishermen in the floating villages and ensures a clean environment. Likewise, the drive from and back to Hanoi was totally pleasant. 
All in all, you get really something for your money away from mass tourism – were almost always the only boat far and wide. Therefore only to be recommended!

Perfect trip

It was just perfect !!! We decided on the 2D1N tour and were picked up in Hanoi with a luxury minivan. The ship is incredibly luxurious, the rooms very clean and warm water was always there. The crew was just great !! Kenny our tour guide was very well taken care of all the guests and the crew was very accommodating, extremely friendly and helpful … great team !! The kayak tour also pleased us.
The tour, the crew, the program and of course the beautiful nature are just to be recommended !!
Thank you for everything!

Wonderful experience

We were just on the 3D2N tour with the Dragon Legend with our 5 years old son.
That was great for us all. Our son was allowed to kayak with the guide and squid in the evening. The landscape is gorgeous and the care excellent.
We can only praise this tour in the highest tones and would go again at any time.
