I'm living in BeiHai and I really wanted to take the ferry to HaLong, Vietnam, but I was not even sure if it existed after extensive web searching. I went to the International Ferry Terminal in Beihai and, indeed, such a ferry does exist, but, alas, was informed that only people with a Chinese ID are allowed to take this ferry, which excludes me. My impression is that this limits it to Chinese citizens. I don't know how they can get away with excluding Vietnamese citizens. Why would the Vietnamese government permit this nonsense?

So I did not actually get to ride on the ferry, but I hope this review will be helpful to anyone considering taking the trip.
