1 night on boat (ensuite bathroom)
We had a lovely cruise in Halong Bay organised by Nguen Ha Dong's Travel agency. We arrived to great weather which was a great surprise after a few dreary days in Hanoi. The boat was very clean and the rooms had a real luxury feel to them. On arrival we were greeted with a fantastic lunch that was extremely well catered for our dietary requirement. Dong made sure that the crew were well informed that we were vegans and the food that they produced for us was really tasty. On the first day we cruised into the bay and did an hour of kayaking near a fishing village. The lime stone karst formations were incredibly beautiful, there is really no place on earth quite like it. After kayaking we went on a tour of "the amazing cave" You could miss this and have more time to appreciate the scenery. The landscape is much more amazing. After the cave we had some free time and then another wonderful meal followed by drinks on the top deck as we watched the sun set. The following day we had an early breakfast followed by a sail through the bay on the way back to the pier in Halong city. The only thing that I would change about my cruise would be to go for 2 nights as I think there is so much more to see in the bay! A great experience and not to be missed! 5 Stars!
