A good tour around the island and into the cave but it is such a popular destination that it is difficult to get the quality of photographs you want because of the number of other boats in the area.

The experience from Chan May was so good, our group decided to to tour together in Ha Long Bay. Once again our 2 Vietnamese ladies got us vans to tour the city and cruise the bay for $30USD and we saw the bay, caves with authentic experience instead of big bus Americanized tours. On our way back we ask our driver to drop us couple of miles from the port near local restaurants and shops, we ended up eating locally and shop all the way back to the ship. Another perfect day.

We joined a private tour which was a boat ride on Halong Bay. It was enjoyable enoug, but it was a very foggy day, so the sights were obstructed. If I were there again, I would go into Hanoi instead.

We went to Hanoi using Smile Tours with a Cruise Critic group. The trip there and back is exhausting - about 3 hours each way, but the tour itself was quite good. As a veteran I was very disturbed by the tour of the Hanoi Hilton (as I was in the war museum in Saigon). The distance between the port and the city would cause me to recommend that people visit Hanoi over a two day period. Read Less

OK it involves over seven hours on a bus but wouldn't have missed Hanoi, the place is a mixture of stunning and crazy! Crossing the road takes on a whole new meaning here!!!

Very busy, bustling city. Hundreds of motor cycles everywhere. Very interesting city. The old French quarter is a must to explore. A very long day, but well worth it.

We did not want to spend 7 hours on a bus or in a mini-van to visit Hanoi. We spent two wonderful days privately cruising Ha Long bay and Lan Ha bay at Cat ba island with Sails of Indochina.
