I certainly didn't truly feel I missed out not visiting the primary bay. It was very quiet and tranquil that is exactly how I needed to see the Karst, the last similar experience of mine was in Yangshuo and this was a nightmare with all...More

We stayed on Dragon Legend overnight which was well worth the money. The food was excellent and our cabin was to die for. Kayaking and swimming was fantastic. We absolutely loved it and knew it would be the highlight of our tour of Vietnam xxx

Much less congested than HaLong bay and just as magested. Having so few boats in the area made it feel like you're the only ones there. A MUST SEE.

Booked a Bai Tu Long cruise via HALONG SAPA EXPERTS site agent was definitely worth for our time..Pick up/ drop off on time and they treated us like VIP, transfer only 2.5 hours to cruise harbor, very comfortable van and food was excellent.

For sure you already know about this place, I want to add my two cents. Take a 3 days cruise, you won’t regret it.
