Michael hi we have just left Hanoi and went to halong bay, we went on the "Emotion" junk, and it was great!!

You may pay more but there are so many bad or ordanary ones floating around out in the bay its a joke.

You may get lumbered with a dozen differant people in a bus to go to halong bay, and when you get there it sems utter chaos, but when you go to your 4star boat and see all the "SS minows" heading out, makes it all worth while.

We ate well, slept well, went on a tour like a thousand other hapless souls do, its still asia!! but the boat makes it all bearable.

There were some sail type junks out there that looked ok....so i gues if your 20 something and young do the free and easy sail a scow..but if you like some comforts, look at the "Emotion" as an option.

Scott we are in Hoi An now weather is ok just walking out for the nite..
