Halong Bay is the stuff dreams are made of: steep limestone islets sprinkled throughout a bay surrounded by hills, caves and the Red River delta stretching from Hanoi. The air seems misty, as if you could wake up at any minute and find it was all a dream -- but it's real, and the photos prove that this magical place really does exist. If you are ever in North Vietnam, this is a MUST SEE experience.

2 days/ 1 night, I had an incredible time. The place is so beautiful, peaceful, relaxing, inspiring, I highly recommend. The crew we had were fantastic, they are friendly, helpful and work so hard, the boat is immaculate. Our guide Tim was fantastic, we packed in so much and he got the balance right of telling us things but not crowding us. You have to do the the kayaking, it’s excellent. What’s not to love! Our bar man Bien was great, so friendly and they just want you to have a good time. The place the people, I am over the moon with my first two full days in Vietnam and fully recommend this trip.

We were on a cruise ship so this was one of our tours. The boats are the traditional "junk boats" but were just fine and actually pretty decent inside, and they had restrooms. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip for the day enjoyable in a very crowded situation. The boats go across Halong Bay and head to the huge underground cave, which is covered in more boats and more people. Our guide kept us together and got us through the cave in a pretty amazing manner considering. Be VERY prepared for steps upon steps that head up the side of a large hill. You will then have to walk quite a ways up the hill and through the cave on uneven and sometimes wet pavement. The inside of the cave is worth the trip, but if you are disabled, I would recommend skipping the cave completely, it would just be too difficult. The boats are all competing to get to the best place at each area to take pictures while out on the bay, so it's not unusual for them to "bump into" each other to get others out of the way. You're fine, but just be prepared you may hit a few boats on the trip. I don't know of another way to see what we saw that day in Halong Bay!
