Heaven At Halong Bay

Heaven At Halong Bay

With VietStyle, we arrived at the bay and got onto our boat which would be our home for the next day and it was really nice, we had an en suite room with air-con, a lot more than I thought we would get. We set sail and our first stop was for a trip round […] Read more >>
My Halong Bay Tour

My Halong Bay Tour

We booked a three day two night trip to Ha Long Bay. It seems there really isn’t anyway of doing this otherwise. We were lucky as of the 12 on the tour we knew most. Caroline and I obviously, Leigh from US, Joell and Stephen from Holland and Karen Goodfellow and Jill from UK. To […] Read more >>
Halong Bay – Paradise in the world

Halong Bay – Paradise in the world

Halong Bay is such a beautiful place, I’ve never seen anything like it before! There’s over 2000 small islands there but they say they only have 1969 because that’s the year that Ho Chi Minh died. The tour guide on the boat told us a few of the names – fighting cock, Kissing couple and […] Read more >>

Cruising Halong Bay

We had planned to take the train from Hue to Hanoi, perhaps with a stop along the way, but due to the visa debarked earlier our time in Vietnam was running short. Instead we caught a cheap flight with Vietnam Airways. We were pretty impressed with the airline but little disappointed to let our last […] Read more >>

We joined a tour and spent one night and two days aboard a traditional junk cruising amongst the varying limestone cliffs and emerald green waters of the bay. It was very comfortable on board the […] Read more >>

Mighty HalongBay

From the plethora of tour guides lining the streets of the bustling Hanoi city, we finally managed to select an agent that seemed to quote us a reasonable price. Both Rob and I felt if we paid a little less, we wouldn’t be too disappointed if the trip was miserable – the mentality being, you […] Read more >>

Boat trip around the bay

Boat trip around the bay

After a 13 hour train journey and 4 hour bus ride, we arrived in Halong Bay which was unfortunately very overcast and misty. We had an hour for breakfast and a shower and then it was straight onto a junk boat to sail around the bay. The views were beautiful and the mist made it […] Read more >>
