red dragon via dragon pearl............

hi guys

i have been offered what i think is a decent price for both these boats to do the 2d/1n tour to Bai Tu Long Bay

this is what i have been sent ....

At this time, there are not many boat/cruise run to Bai Tu Long bay. I'm glad to recommend you Indochina Junk, which focused on developing small luxury boats to bring guests to the remote areas in the Bai Tu Long bay and all staff trained for good service.

Now I would like to give you 2 options:

- One is Red Dragon, 5 deluxe cabins and designed to resonate with superior class and grandeur. Rate should be US$175/person.

- Another option is Dragon Pearl, a youngest sister of Red Dragon with 11 deluxe cabins. Rate is US$115/person.

this is being offered by a company called indochinavoyages.com

my hotel is hanoi have offered me the red dragon criuse for $205pp,

dont know which one to choose now, dragon pearl does seem cheaper and the only difference seems to be bigger boat, more people

can anyone help me please

We were on the Dragon's Pearl and loved it but that is a low rate for the Dragon's pearl so get more info on the company that's offering it so low as you might find yourself on another boat.

We just did the 3day/2night Dragons Pearl for $244.00 per person. I feel that this was avery reasonable price and I would recommend the 2 nights in order to have the cave dinner which was a highlight of the voyage!

Both boats are owned by Indochina Junk, one of the better operators in the Halong Bay area. The agent you mentioned, Indochina Voyages, is also very reputable and highly recommended on these forums. They will not sell you a ticket on either of these boats then actually book you on a third, lesser quality, junk.

We also did Dragon Pearl and loved it.

both of them are in the same company, but with the budget of Red dragon I recommend you Bhaya cruise(4* cruise) is much better and the rate are equal. Any way, you should book directly with cruise you choose.
