Staying on board a traditional junk is one of the most popular experiences in Vietnam, allowing you to explore lesser-traveled routes in an authentic vessel, but with modern comforts and great service. 

The Valentine has an air of exclusivity due to its small size, good range of facilities and dedicated crew. The rich wooden interior throughout the boat creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and there are plenty of activities on offer to keep you entertained, from kayaking and diving to movie nights and board games. Meanwhile, retreating to the sun deck with a refreshing cocktail allows you to truly relax whilst taking in the incredible views of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. The karst cliffs of the bay offer atmospheric photographic opportunities and you will discover how local people live on the bay in floating homes.


There are four Valentine Deluxe cabins with double or twin beds, each offering 19 square meters of living space. Up on the second deck, the luxurious Valentine Suite has a king size bed and offers plenty of space at 30 square meters. All cabins are en suite with rain showers and Jacuzzi baths, along with individually controlled air conditioning and large windows.
