I did the one night trip and wish there was a 2 night option. The rooms and bathrooms were large and comfortable. Staff was lovely. Great trip!

We travelled with our family of four including two teenagers. The first communication via e-mail with Mr Tung was very easy, helpful and fast. On the spot everything was arranged. We were part of a bigger group. Two other families of different countries joined us....More

I forgot, it was just the two of us, we had a boat for ourselves. Was more expensive of course, but totally worth it. You can also book tours with small or big groups, just drop them a mail and they will give you an overview.

Confession - I am an over thinker and over packer - arriving Hanoi 13 April for 3 nights then go on 2 day 1 night tour with Cat Ba Ventures. From there we go to Ninh Binh for 2 nights and 2 nights homestay all organised with Toan then back to Hanoi. As we will just take backpacks for this part of the trip and leave the suitcases at our accommodation I am trying to think how I can pack light and practical. Scottj765 I know you and your wife did this and would love her input. TIA

"Scottj765 I know you and your wife did this...." Well, yes and no. ;-) When we were there the first time (with the kids) we left one of our three suitcases in Hanoi. Lisa and I had a bag, and the kids shared one as well. At that time we had one night Cat Ba, four in Ninh Binh and then two in Mai Chau. Last year we had the two nights / three days in Pu Luong and only took a backpack each. Because it was hot, we only had a t-shirt and underwear for each day, a couple of pairs of shorts,...More
2 night cruise - Halong luxury, Vega or Cat Ba Ventures? (7 Replies)
Hi everyone, My fiance and I will be spending 11 nights in Hanoi in August to celebrate our honeymoon. We are thinking about taking a 3 day/2 night trip to Halong Bay or Cat Ba Island, and there seem to be so many options, from luxurious boats with balconies and jacuzzis, to more adventurous tours with basic lodging. Right now we are trying to decide between a luxury cruise (i.e., Signature, Dragon Pearl), a small tour company like Vega that offers both Halong and Cat Ba, or something...More

Hi Bethany, We (2 adults / 2 teenagers) used Cat Ba Ventures in October 2014. Our boat was pretty basic, but more than adequate and we loved the experience that a private cruise gave us. For a honeymoon? I would. :-) And I think my wife would. Think..... ;-) But lots, mainly brides I suspect, perhaps wouldn't. ;-) Sorry for not really helping. :-) Cheers, Scott

Quick 5.5 day trip to northern vietnam (0 Replies)
I found out I was going to be in Southern China for my 30th Birthday for work in April, and I decided to make the best of it and book a side trip to Vietnam at the end of my trip. I only have 5.5 days for this trip so i'm trying to squeeze in the best parts. One of my friends may be joining me for the first 3 days of the trip but otherwise I am doing a solo trip. I'd really appreciate any pointers that can be given, this is my rough plan: Day 1: land in Hanoi at 11pm Day 2: take a...More
