Loredana V: My family went on 2-day and 1-night cruise in Annam Junk. We enjoyed the trip very much. Our trip was arranged by Blue Dragon Tours. From the start to the finish, everything was quite smooth and convenient. We were picked up at our hotel near Hanoi Old Quarter. A drive to Halong was long but comfortable in an air-conditioned car. Many activities organized to help us get close to Halong Bay (swimming, kayaking, visit to oyster farm…). All in all, this is a memorable experience.
Aldea: It was our fabulous experience as we stayed in VIP suite of Annam Junk. Our suite was spacious enough but comfy with adequate amenities. We had a floor to ceiling window which allowed us to admire the stunning vistas from our bed. There was also a private balcony with table and chairs for sitting and relaxing. The cruise guide was outstanding with fluent languages in English, French, and Mandarin. Thanks to his useful information, we know more about Halong Bay.
