Jasminecruises.com operates three traditional-style, high-end boutique junks in this bay, collectively known as the “Three Sisters”. Named after flowers that are native to Halong Bay, these Three Sisters include the Violet, the Jasmine and the Ginger. Violet is the youngest sister (2009), known for her bright charm. Jasmine, the middle child (2007), offers languid comfort. Ginger, the eldest, combines classic beauty with old-fashioned hospitality (2006).
While all those who visit Halong Bay are charmed by the archipelago’s beauty, few visitors are aware that the three-thousand islands that dot this bay are home to many rare plants, including species found nowhere else in the world. We chose our boats names: Halong Ginger, Halong Jasmine and Halong Violet, because like the plants they were named after, our junks are perfectly suited the environment. With its golden sails, polished woodwork and refined Asian decor, private dock & waiting lounge, and longer cruising loops, Jasminecruises.com truly offers an unforgettable ambiance of relaxed elegance.
For Jasminecruises.com‘s itinerary, Halong Bay is ethereally beautiful. Surrounded by misty islands, visitors can enjoy morning tai chi classes on their junk’s sundeck. They can kayak through a maze of deserted islands; cycle through emerald paddy fields on Cat Ba Island; and visit local floating fishing villages. Arguably the most famous destination in Vietnam, Halong Bay is a natural wonder.
