Great experience on Halong bay


Cruise is definitely the best way to see the area, as there’s not a lot to do otherwise. It is very good value for money, considering the activities you get to experience and the amount of food you get. We stayed overnight on cruise and got to hike Ti-top island, kayak through Luon cave and visit the largest cave discovered in Halong bay. We were fed 4 times in total; lunch on arrival, dinner, early morning breakfast and light lunch before departure. I would recommend this tour to my friends & family and would be happy to go on the cruise again.
