As beautiful as the pictures if not more so. Very romantic and unusual spot. Loved that it was less crowded.

Rooms were great with bath overlooking ocean and best rainforest shower ever. The pool was boiling hot (sea water) . Staff especially were warm and friendly and looked after our 7 and 4yr olds. Coco and Harry Potter were particularly charming.

Relaxing on the top deck of the Indochina Sails junk boat and enjoying the magnificent views of the natural limestone formation. Stunning and tranquil.

We ended up our cruise trip that booked from HALONG SAPA EXPERTS cruise agent. Our cruise sailed to Bai Tu Long Bay as promised with many things to do and see and they also arranged great vegetarian food at meals for us.

Hi Paul, sorry for my late reply. We did go to Bai Tu Long Bay. Nice but not special enough for the time to travel to there and the costs. We had a private junk which was rather expensive. Looking back, a couple of days... More
