This picture is of Ha-Long Bay, Viet-Nam which is about 25 miles south of Hanoi. The boats are not true junks but replicas used to take tourists through the beautiful Ha-Long bay area. The only thing that is representative of a junk are the sails which in reality are much too small to power these ships, they are powered by diesel engines. They are well equipped with all the modern day amenities such as spacious air conditioned cabins. The trip is a definite plus should you ever go to Viet Nam. The tours are available for one day or overnight for two and three days, well worth it. I've been there several times and have taken this trip each time I visited that country.
