Bhaya Cruise, Traditional Junk

View website
Hanoi, Vietnam

Bhaya Cruises offers a fleet of new vessels with a direct link to Vietnamese imperial history. A true traveler of his time, the Vietnamese Emperor Khai Dinh defied the custom of taking thousands of courtiers on a royal trip. In 1917, he took just 12 of his most trusted advisers on a very exceptional trip to Halong Bay, and his vessel was one of the most wonderful wooden junks to have sailed these waters. Inspired by the romantic landscape of the limestone karst islands rising out of the emerald-green waters, Khai Dinh commissioned a poem in praise of the Bay’s beauty to be carved on the cliff of Dau Go Cave.
The embodiment of an ancient Halong dream, the Bhaya vessels are a flawless combination of traditional Vietnamese aesthetic delicacy and western luxury and comfort. Sailing in the midst of the wonder and natural beauty that distinguishes Halong Bay, the Bhaya vessels play a considerable role in the embellishment and protection of this glorious World Heritage Site.
Each Bhaya Classic vessel has just 20 cabins with hotel-style beds and European linen and duvets to ensure intimate privacy and comfort for all guests. Deluxe cabins offer all the amenities necessary for you to feel comfortable, including twin beds (convertible into double bed) or a queen bed, air conditioner, wall fan, refrigerator, and en-suite bathroom with shower. Each features a picture window, providing added light and memorable views.
