Red Dragon Junk - travel to Bai Tu Long Bay

Red Dragon Junk

Named and designed after an authentic Chinese Junk, the original Red Dragon junk plied the rivers, seas and harbors of the Far East, from Singapore to northern China. Two Red Dragon boats in our fleet are ready to cruise for your life events in Halong Bay.

Our Red Dragon is complete with five deluxe cabins and 2 decks, designed to resonate with superior class and grandeur. Being larger than Prince and Princess Junk, it is still small enough to get up close to the natural wonders, pocket lagoons and small fishing communities of Bai Tu Long Bay, cruising off the beaten track. The charming Red Dragon Junk is an excellent companion to explore natural beauty and enjoy warm welcome from caring staffs.


As soon as you board the Red Dragon, you will be surrounded by traditional handmade artisan woodwork. Whether you are relaxing in the comfort of your own cabin, lounging on the spacious sun deck, or dinning in the cosy restaurant, you will feel treated like royalty.

This masterpiece is a wonderful option for those who need a little more space for a small group cruise up to 11 people.

We really enjoyed our 3 day stay in Ninh Binh . David, the owner, looked after us really well, organised tours in the area and even came with us for one outing. He also arranged our trips to Sapa and to Halong bay. Both trips were wonderful. The hotel is small but very comfortable. We really appreciated David's friendly and professional approach.

“Excellent service, room and location”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

The hotel is very nice, well located, rooms are very clean and comfortable and Mr. David the owner is very friendly and helpful. We hired a scooter to do a local tour, and also booked a tour in Halong Bay with him, and we were very happy with his recommendations. Vancouver Hotel is for sure one of the best hotels we have stayed in Vietnam. I highly recommend one stop here!
