Ha long bay is simply beautiful!! The boat was a little old but the tour guide Duc was so lovely and really looked after us. The kayaking was lots of fun and amazing to be the only ones at the beach. The food was good and very generous portion sizes. If it’s in your budget definitely go for it but check the weather first!
