Valentine Cruise

Price Tour: US$ 258/per person


Start city: Hanoi
End city: Hanoi
Duration: 2 or 3 days

Valentine is 5 star luxury junk owned by the Indochina sails team. The boat is built in Vietnam, utilizing local materials and the handiwork of skilled shipbuilders, craftsmen and artists. As in the days of old they are built entirely of wood. The wood featured in the interiors is called “go huong”, which translates as aromatic wood. It is a highly durable and beautifully grained wood which adds to the richness and warm character of the boats. Each boat features spacious, well-appointed cabins and suites with large ensuite marble bathrooms, a large sundeck with comfortable lounge furniture and an elegant dining room and bar. We have designed and fitted our boats to international standards while maintaining traditional Chinese Junk styling, creating the perfect balance of modern comforts and nostalgic ambiance.
