Halong bay Vietnam

Ha Long Bay, in the Gulf of Tonkin, includes some 1,970 islands and islets, forming a spectacular
seascape of limestone pillars and forested cone-shaped islands. Because of their steepness, most of
the islands are uninhabited and unaffected by humans. The site has outstanding scenic beauty and
great geological and biological interest

“Beautiful boat, fantastic staff, amazing scenery.”

Overall, this was a fantastic opportunity to go off the beaten track to explore Halong Bay. You travel with a fleet Continental Sail but the fleet is the only one in sight. We took a 2D/1N journey. On the first day we anchored near and had the opportunity to kayak before dinner. Took a tour of the limestone caves.

Unfortunately we couldn't enjoy the beautifully prepared meals as we were recovering from a bout of food poisoning from the previous nights hotel stay :-( It looked beautiful and the other guests raved about it. The staff was so accommodating and helpful - offering us bread and other light food to help us recover.

The ship was very clean and the rooms were comfortable. However, I do agree with a previous poster about the noise however. We are a family of 4 (2adults, 2children) so we rented 2 cabins - one of which was near the generator and it was awfully loud. If possible, try to request a cabin further to the front of the boat away from the noise. Alternatively, try to book the front cabin which is larger (double and twin beds?) and has a fantastic view.
