It's shape is reminiscent of the vessels of the famous river delta in southern Vietnam. This comfortable wooden boat is protected by the watchful dark eyes of the red dragon painted on the prow.

Vietnamese Junks Photo

Vietnamese Junks Vietnam Comfort Plus Class Boat Carved dragon heads decorate the prow of the Junks in the Ha Long and Bai Tu Bay. Dragons belong to the circle of four sacred animals of Vietnam and they proudly guide the traditional wooden boats through the fairytale cliffs of the South China Sea. It is easy to feel at home on the junks: the saloon with its upholstered wicker furniture and colorful carpets are a comfortable feature of the ship. For each meal, the tables are lovingly set and the folded cloth napkins are a piece of art. The crew, in their brilliant white uniforms, greet you warmly with a welcome drink with the hospitality that is so common Vietnam.
