The islands of Halong Bay are incredible. Loved seeing them. The cruise out on the junk was good and informative. I would pass on the kayak tour if you have breathing problems. If you kayak, the tour was interesting seeing the islands and the fishing village. Lunch on board the junk was good. ...

I had been to Halong Bay before and took an overnight junk trip, so I had decided not to take a boat ride unless weather conditions were good.

Having been to Halong Bay before, we did not wish to pay an exorbitant amount to see something with which we were already very familiar - and, just as well we didn't! The offloading procedure for those passengers going ashore were excruciatingly incompetent. ...

Really only worth seeing the is lands just off the port. If you have seen the Names Bond is lands in Thsikand, this is similar. There is a street market. Very stressful experience. Be prepared for a lot of hassle from vendors ...

We booked an independent trip to Hanoi with a Vietnamese company and it was very good. The driver collected us just outside the port and we picked up the guide as we entered Hanoi. He was excellent and varied the itinerary to accommodate our requests. ...
