I can't expect a meal, but otherwise

Among the various cruise tours, I chose this tour because I can go to Titov Island, where you can see Halong Bay in addition to the scenery from the ship, where you can see the largest Son Sotto cave. Kayak or Bamboo boat gets wet when kayak gets very tired, so if you want to take a picture or enjoy sightseeing easily, I think Bamboo boat is good

It was good to go.

The hotel pick-up was the last, so two people participated but the seats were separated. I can't help it. Halong Bay was reviewed at this time as it was raining or not so nice, but the day we participated was fine and the scenery was great. Lunch on the ship is a style to share with a group of 6 people. It was a Vietnamese seafood dish, but it was neither good nor bad. Cave walking is a good exercise because there was some ups and downs. I was surprised because it was much larger than a Japanese cave. The beach we visited last was crowded with locals and we didn't have to stop there. Because I used the highway for going and returning, I arrived in 3 hours one way. It was an English-guided tour, but I was not very good at English, but it was quite good.
