Great port with many options. We had visited before, so we went to Macao and the New Territories this time. Also, we revisited the Jade Market, Temple Night Market and took the old tram through Hong Kong.
Enjoyed seeing traffic crazy, frenetic Hanoi but the long ride both ways was excruciating. The tour buses have seats built for smaller Asian bodies. Maybe someone can devise a faster way to visit Hanoi from a cruise ship
Halong Bay Rating:
Cruised Halong Bay on a junk for 5-6 hours and made stops to visit caves and a pearl farm.
Many of the shops were closed due to Tet. The only interesting sight was the old post office. It would have been nice to have seen more of the old colonial buildings and notable neighborhoods. We should have taken the Cu Chi Tunnels tour.
Mekong Delta Cruise Rating:
This was an excellent tour except for the portion in the small rowing boat. Boat access and egress were tricky and difficult. There were also no life preservers or safety precautions.
