Book Garden Bay junks
Garden Bay Junks are among the few boats that can cruise and anchor in Bai Tu Long Bay, to the north of Halong Bay.
We offer cabins on four boats with 10, 12, 13, and 14 cabins. All the boats are of the same four-star quality. This allows you the chance to enjoy the bay away from tourist crowds and in great comfort.
All cabins offer a splendid open view of the bay, each with a private bathroom. They are spacious and ideal for couples and small families (a couple with one child, for example).
We offer both 3-day and 2-day cruises with nights on the boat. An English-speaking guide will be on board with you to provide insights into the local way of life and lead various activities such as kayaking, cycling, and cooking classes.
You can send us an inquiry by filling out this form. This way, we will have all the necessary information and can provide you with a detailed quote accordingly.
The photos of the boat and the cruise, as well as the details of the 3-day and 2-day itineraries, can be found further down on this page.
