The group will spend 9 nights in tourist class hotels (approx 3 star), 1 night in village 'homestay' accommodation, 2 nights on a sleeper train and 1 night on board a junk boat (converted rice boats) in Halong Bay. The junk boats are very comfortable with en-suite cabins. On the overnight train the compartments usually have 4 bunks and are separated from the corridor with a door. At the end of the carriage there is a simple wash room. Sheets and bedding is provided on the train, however you may wish to use your sleeping bag lining as well. At the home stay accommodation the number of beds in the rooms varies. It could be that 1 family is in a single room, or that the whole group is in one room together. Facilities are shared. Again bedding and blankets are provided but it is always good to take a sleeping bag liner to sleep in.
In the hotels children of 11yrs and under will share with parents in a triple for a family of 3 or a double with an extendable couch for a family of 4. Children over 12 yrs will share with parents in a triple for a family of 3, or have 2 rooms for a family of 4. We will do everything to ensure that you are happy with your rooming allocation. Additional nights are available at the beginning and end of the holiday. Details of your first night's hotel together with an emergency number will be provided with your booking confirmation.
