A newly built wooden junk, Halong Phoenix Luxury is well designed to balance traditional and luxurious styles to offer a comfortable cruise trip on the tranquil waters of Halong Bay. 

Launched the May of 2013, Halong Phoenix Luxury, sister of Halong Phoenix Cruiser 1 and 2, is offering a pioneering new generation of vessel with both up-comprising quality and luxurious standard.

It is a large vessel, spacious and very stable; you will find yourself particularly cozy on it.

 

Halong Bay has been pursuing unsustainable development and wholesale commercial tourism, and it is now over-used by both day and overnight boats - weaving everyday through the same well-worn mass cruising route starting from old harbor.

However, there is still an alternative – Tuan Chau Marina, from which boats will cruise on less crowded route to approach the centre area.
