  1. SirGaw

    We did this overnight cruise to Halong Bay as part of our booked travel, and it was fantastic. The boat was beautiful, and the cabins were quite comfy. The personnel was quite pleasant and cheerful. The cuisine was excellent. Halong Bay was one of the most gorgeous sites I’ve ever seen, and it’s well worth making the trip.

  2. Hermant P

    We’re here for the first time, but it won’t be the last. Mr. Dong did a great job for us. The guy is a kind and friendly person. My wife and I have already decided to come back here for our next holiday next year. We love the scenery, and it helps me relax. I really like what Mother Nature has given me here.
