Fantastic overnight stay. Boat was authentic Vietnamese. Great food and views were beautiful. Karaoke at night. Kayaking during a stop. Climb up to see fantastic view from above. Rock formations are numerous and our day, although cloudy and cool was clear. Got to know many interesting people from everywhere around the world.

Be careful of the drinks system on this cruise. They tallied ours and other passengers drinks wrong, so we ended up paying the same for drinks as we did for the cruise. Aside from this the cruise was really fun and the boat was really nice, our guides Max and Alex were lovely and good fun. They need to do pay as you go for drinks so that any problems can be sorted at the time as this left a little sour note to the end of a really good trip.

Halong Bay was probably the best experience we had in Vietnam due to several reasons. Our boat and room were really nice and clean , good weather, kayaking, amazing scenery, but mostly because of our tour guide Vu. His English skills are good, he has extensive knowledge of history, culture and was able to answer our of our questions. Besides going extra lengths to entertain the guests, he managed to create a personal connection and provide us with real, genuine perspective to local living, pains and joys of Vietnamese culture. Witty, respectful, honest, friendly - hands down, Vu is the best tour guide we had.
