The Red DragonNamed and designed after an authentic Chinese junk, the original Red Dragon plied the rivers, seas and harbours of the Far East, from Singapore to northern China.Our Red Dragon is complete with five deluxe cabins and designed to resonate with superior class and grandeur. Larger than The Prince and Princess it is still small enough to get up close to the natural wonders, pocket lagoons and small fishing communities of Halong and Bai Tu Long bays.

Did notice sellotape of the ceiling on there room which seemed to work, how ever they did have water running down the wall. Staff were friendly enough. Meals were... More

Wow!!! The 2 night cruise was most definitely a highlight of our visit to Vietnam, aside from the perfect weather that made this a truly magical experience. Travelling as a group of eight, four kids and four adults we were lucky enough to have the cruise to ourselves and the six attentive crew members that catered to our every whim... More

My husband and I went on a tour of Halong Bay on Red Dragon Junk. The staff were amazing and friendly. There was one other couple and a family of six on the trip with us. It was very nice, a great way to meet new people as the setting was so intimate. The food was wonderful, drinks were more... More

Great trip for families. We had 3 children with us, ages 9-7-4. Crew was friendly, accommodations were perfect. Enjoyable trip. Only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is two people in my party had some stomach issues after the trip. Most likely food related. It happens and I would not discourage anyone from doing the trip - but an... More

The service on board the Red Dragon junk was simply terrific; the guide was very patient with us throughout the trip and helped us in many small ways, like helping my friend to bandage and dress her leg injury she had before the trip. The group on this junk is relatively small, so the service crew and guide were all... More

This trip was really good with a well-trained staff. Only 5 cabins on this junk, we were only 8 people during the cruise. Smaller groups help to enjoy the peace of the Ha Long Bay. We made a few stops to visit a cave, to swim in Bay Te Long waters, to visit a floating village and meet some fishermen.... More

We loved the overnight Halong Bay cruise on the Red Dragon Junk. This is the most beautiful boat and the staff amazing. Our guide was great and we enjoyed the visit to caves, kayaking, swimming in the bay and tour of floating village. Food was amazing and the intimate setting with only 10 people was priceless. The highlight is the... More

We did an overnight cruise of Halong and Bai to Long Bays. This cruise is perfect if you want a small intimate setting of less tha 10 people. The crew is very friendly and accommodating and the chef makes great multi- course meals ( 6-7 courses). Our host Mr. Tee was very personable and coordinated the various activities for the... More

We sailed on the red dragon for 2 nights and 3 days and it was a superb family trip. It was a small boat with only 10 passengers and the overall trip felt like travelling with family due to the exceptional service from the staff. Mr T the tour guide was always present with good advice and just what was... More

Just finished a 3 day 2 night cruise on the Red Dragon. What a wonderful time and amazing experience. This was our second time on a Halong Bay Junk cruise with this same company and they did not disappoint a second time around!
