Your comfortable and intimate luxury Junk features hand-crafted wooden interiors, a dining room and pleasant air-conditioned cabins with private baths. 

Hue, once the capital of Vietnam is now known for its magnificent architecture including the citadel, palaces, royal tombs, pagodas and temples as well as the scenery found along the Perfume River. Hue is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to a number of beautiful and historic monuments such as the Imperial Citadel and the tombs of several emperors, including, Bao Dai and Tu Duc.

Hoi An was a major Oriental and international trading port and merchant meeting place for the traders and ships of Japan, China and the west during the 16th and 17th centuries. As a result, the old town in Hoi An has a diverse mixture of architectural styles and today is considered a living museum of architecture and urban lifestyle. Hoi An was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999.

Saigon is a city full of contrasts as street vendors selling fruit and vegetables can be seen next to modern businesses and boutiques. In 1859 the city was captured by the French and from 1956 until its demise in April 1975, it was the capital of the Republic of Vietnam.

Renamed Ho Chi Minh City at the end of the American War, HCMC is very much the heart of Vietnamese business. However, the city still retains its connections to the past, particularly in Cholon, Saigon’s Chinatown and in the architecture of many of the buildings such as the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office.

The Mekong Delta is often referred to as the rice bowl of Vietnam as it produces three harvests per year. The fertile Mekong Delta is also famous for its tropical fruits and flowers. The Delta area marks the end of the Mekong Rivers 4,500km journey made through six countries to reach the ocean. Traditional transportation in the Delta is by boat along a vast network of canals and channels.
