Ha Long Bay is a must-visit in Vietnam. In our case, we went on a 2-day trip, with overnight aboard a small cruise ship. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. To regret the impossibility of enjoying the entirety of one of the beaches for reasons unrelated to the tour.

We enjoyed our time with Renea cruises. Halong bay is stunning and we loved waking up there in the morning with a cup of coffee and the view! The food was tasty and we did all the activities however I would of liked more history / explanation about Halong bay from the tour guide. This would of make it a 5 star experience. Overall a lovely time!
