Dragon’s Pearl Junk is the bigger cruise option for groups in the Indochina Junk family. The 3 Dragon’s Pearl boats were modeled on the traditional Chinese junks which sailed long ago.

The boat features 11 cabins and 3 decks with both outside and inside dining areas. Each cabin is beautifully decorated in a traditional style and equipped with modern amenities for a comfortable stay. Large sea view windows allow you to enjoy the fantastic landscape outside, from the comfort of your room. The sundeck on top will be a great place to view the bay at sunset and have an enjoyable time with your friends.

Whether you are dining in the restaurant, lounging on one of the 2 sundecks or relaxing in the comfort of your cabin, you will be surrounded by the handcrafted teak and oak fittings that make the Dragon’s Pearl such a wonderful sailing vessel.

Like all the other boats of Indochina Junk’s fleet, Dragon’s Pearl Junk provides an off the beaten track cruise experience to Bai Tu Long Bay with many interesting activities. Our crew works hard to ensure you are completely satisfied until the last second of your trip.

This classic junk is ideal for parties for larger groups (up to 20 people) or corporate incentive groups. Alternatively book a berth and get to meet new friends as you cruise the bay.
