Our group went on a five day tour to Hanoi in mid May 2013. The day cruise of Ha Long Bay was no doubt the most enjoyable part of the trip. It was a fine day. We had a wonderful time on a junk boat enjoying the light sea breeze and the wonderful scenery of mother nature. The day tour supposedly included a seafood lunch. We were tipped off by the tour guide that we might be disappointed by the seafood meal included. So we bought some fresh fruits and also some seafood (squid, prawn and crabs) from fishermen selling their catch on their small fish boats which approached our junk boat for business. The staff on the junk boat cooked the seafood for us, at a reasonable additional cost. Beware. The cost of the seafood from small fishing boats was much more reasonable than that of the fishing farm that the tour guide first took us!
