"Halong Bay overnight cruise"

Halong Bay 1 Night Cruise

Really good package deal to see the highlights of Halong Bay. Our tour guide Jimmy was amazing, he really went above and beyond in his efforts to make us feel comfortable and he had a great spirit and attitude to life, he was a real pleasure. Even for me and my friend who are vegetarians, the food was great, and everything was arranged perfectly for us. We had a very straightforward pick-up from the hotel in the morning and we arrived to spacious cabins on the boat. Mattresses were maybe a bit firm but overall it was not too bad. Activities included hiking through a cave, kayaking Halong Bay, cruising Halong Bay, beach time and an informative cooking class, all in the two days that we were there! The Halong Bay 2 day 1 night cruise is a can’t-miss opportunity in Vietnam. Call V’Spirit and request Jimmy!
