Cruising Ha Long Bay on the Treasure Junk

On every adventure there are a few special destinations you cannot wait to experience in person. After weeks of anticipation, my night on a traditional junk boat was beyond worth the journey. I made new friends, took countless photos, and watching the sun set behind the limestone formations as we kayaked the bay was even more amazing than I imagined it would be. Oh, and that view!

Deciding how to experience Ha Long Bay is definitely not easy. After hours of research I booked my tour with Handspan Travel and I could not be more satisfied with my decision. The tour included transportation, all meals and activities, and wonderful accommodations onboard a traditional junk boat. Handspan was a pleasure to work with via email prior to arriving in Vietnam and completely delivered on my expectations.

The experience onboard was top notch. From amazing meals and a cooking class, to water sports and tai chi, to comfortable rooms, no detail was spared. After watching the sunrise from the main deck before departure while sipping hot tea my only thought was that I wish I had booked two nights instead of one.
