Ha Long Bay, Hanoi, Vietnam

Hi Forum,
Can you guys give me a heads up on Ha Long Bay,3 days in early August, preferably land based with daily trips around the islands.

I have not stayed in the Bay itself, and when visiting, travelled down from Hanoi. I am not sure there is much in the way of hotels there or at least there were none when I was there last (2009). Most of my work has been in the South so have only been up North the once - holiday, and as you can see it was a while ago. I would suggest Google is your freind and or Trip Advisor. If staying in Hanoi would recomend the "old" Sofitel.

Kind regards
Mr Mac

Don't bother with daily trips. Was there a few months ago and booked a luxury junk for two days, including a night aboard - there are longer trips available. Trips to local islands were arranged from the 'mother ship'. Wonderful time - good food & company. Beautiful cabin, own verandah, excellent facilities. Not cheap, but worth every cent.

I agree with Reynoldsno1.

A few days out on a junk is the only way to enjoy this wonderful area.

With a bit more time you spend a day or two on Cat Ba island.
