Introduction

Introduction

The treasure is a one of a kind vessel in the whole Halong archipelago. Based on a solid structure and re-designed in a wooden junk style. It is stable, able to navigate in any seabed of the region and can easily face the rough if needed.

Its giant sails may come as a support to the engine if the winds are with us, they are part of the folklore and give a nice sensation of embracing the big outdoors [editor’s note: absolutely no boat in Halong bay can sail only without the engine running] .

The Treasure is a large vessel, very spacious and comfortable. You will find yourself particularly cozy on it.

Cabins

The Treasure features 14 cabins, all equipped with comfortable bedding, private western standards bathroom and a stunning view through large windows. The cabins are distributed as follow:
• 2 suites | potentially connectable through private balcony | 43 sqm | king size bed | bathtub Jacuzzi | A/C | private balcony.
• 2 double cabins | 11.5 sqm | queen size bed | shower cabin | A/C.
• 10 twin cabins | all convertible into double| 11.5 sqm | 90×190 cm beds | shower cabin | A/C.

Features and Activities

On all of its itineraries, the Treasure offers some kayaking. Real expeditions to lagoons, creeks and floating houses, around the huge standing karsts formations, always away from any other boat. We use Necky kayaks, high quality equipment, imported from Canada and carefully maintained.

To entertain your cruise, vegetable carving and cocktails classes are available. Sometimes upon request as it depends on the number of people on board. Nice wooden board games are also available.

The Treasure features a very large sundeck that you may enjoy anytime of the day. With a cup of coffee witnessing the transient serenity of the bay early morning; relaxing in the sun with a privileged view at the limestone labyrinth; celebrating with a drink this once of a lifetime moment when the moon rises over the karsts.

Food and Beverages

The Treasure offers a long drink list featuring softs, beers, spirits, wines, cocktails, mocktails, smoothies… to slake your thirst and set the aperitif up or accompany a romantic dinner.

Our chef and his team are devoted to offering you some of the most reputed cuisine of the region. The selection is wide and ingredients always local and fresh. Seafood-based, but not only, the menus are well balanced. Vegetarian and kids can be catered for. We strive to make each meal a colorful event for both eyes and papillae.

Itinerary

HALONG & BAI TU LONG DISCOVERY ON TREASURE JUNK: 2 DAYS 1 NIGHT

DayActivitiesLocation
1

Hanoi – Halong (-/L/D)

Depart from Hanoi at 8.00 for a 3.5 hours drive to Halong City through the Red River Delta. Upon arrival, get on board of the Treasure Junk. Start cruising from Hon Gai pier to the boundaries of Halong bay while lunch with fresh seafood is served (vegetarian and kids menus available).

After lunch, just make yourself at ease and relax. We are slowly getting off the classic cruising routes, far from the clichés of a busy tourism spot. Limestone rock formations will parade around us for about 2 hours before our first stop in Cong Do area.

We reach the perfect spot, remote and scenic, where the waters of Halong and Bai Tu Long hit and wave together. Let’s get ready for a wonderful experience on a kayak. Let’s get closer to the water and explore the bay in depth, paddle closer to the rocks and go to one of the many beaches in the Bay.

After one/one and a half hour kayaking, we get back on board to refresh and start the aperitif on the sundeck. The boat cruises to its secluded anchorage area. A fun cooking demonstration by our chef will be presented before dinner that allow you to make a simple Vietnamese dish that you can try before the main dinner that is served either inside or outside depending on weather conditions.

Enjoy a wonderful overnight on board in a cozy air-conditioned cabin with en-suite bathroom facilities.

Halong – Hanoi (brunch)

We will be back at the pier about 11am, and driven to Hanoi with an expected arrival time about 4pm. The day will be short so let’s wake up early to take the maximum of it.

Coffee, tea and cakes will be served from 6.30am. Wake up smoothly while witnessing the silence of beautiful misty bay. A 30-minute Tai Chi session will be organized, energize your body and soul or just allow yourself some time for a sunbath with a cup of coffee.

About 7.45am, we hop on bamboo boats to go visiting a secluded floating village surrounded by the mountains. We trace our way between numerous floating houses and small rowing boats that serve the everyday life as vehicle, itinerant shops, fishing utility, sometimes overnight shelter.

Back on treasure before 9am, we start cruising back to the pier. From 9.30am, a brunch will be served. Take a last glance at the rocks, standing still as the eternal guardians of a kingdom, we are about to reach the pier.

Once on land, we sit in a small café to wait for our overland vehicle.

Halong bay kayaking (B/L/D)

The breakfast will be served from 7.15am. But if you like, we invite you to share a cup of tea or coffee from 6.30am and participate then in a Tai Chi session before breakfast.

Around 8.30am, we board a smaller boat. It takes us even farther from the touristy area, to the hidden nooks of the archipelago. Today, we’ll leave all the crowds behind and cruise deeper into Bai Tu Long Bay where we see more of the beautiful and strange rock formations that are only available in this area. As we cruise passing several floating hamlets including Cap La and Cong Dam, we enter the centre of pristine Bai Tu Long Geology Park. A whole day of fun and relaxation with more kayaking, more swimming, more sandy beaches, more floating houses, more local cuisine, definitely a “cruise++”… There are many beaches here for you to discover as well.

We are back to our support boat for a delicious hot lunch at noontime. After lunch, we spend a little more time for kayaking or relaxing. Later, we meet up with a local fishermen family and board their boat and go fishing the trational way. Hopefully we can catch enough fishes for the dinner.

The guide will lead you back to the Treasure Junk in the mid-afternoon. Time to refresh and to make yourself cozy on the sundeck. Dinner will be served again either in the dining room or on the deck.
