It was a 2 days cruise in Ha Long Bay, (you can have 1 day/2 days/3 days cruise). I chose a new boat, based on recommendation from friends who live in Vietnam, it is important, especially if you spend one night on the boat. I think I made the right boat choice, it was nice. The paddle boat, on the Ngo Dong river, was not impressive, but the way the people paddle with their feet, was quite amazing. And it looks so easy for them….
I know, a lot of people will disagree with me, because Ha Long bay is one of the 7 world natural wonders… for me, just rocks popping out the water…. I saw it, but no need to go back….
