Amazing site in Vietnam. Definitely a must see. I recommend that you take your cruise from Cat Ba and sail to Healing baie ( if you need some quite and to be far from tourism). We booked two day, one night trip in the baie , was really amazing. The boat capacity was for 20 people, small boat, personnalized experience.

We visited here on a 1 night Cruise, the bay is simply stunning! We kayaked around a part of it and enjoyed getting close to the impressive limestone. Where our boat operator arranged the kayaking next to a pearl farm however you could see tons of rubbish has been dumped at various points along the shores which was very disappointing to see. I would think that with all of the money that the different operators bring in revenue to the area that it could be spent on keeping the area clean and protected from rubbish dumping. Otherwise it was a lovely visit to the bay which was impressive even on a rainy day!

In October 2019 I was fortunate enough to win a prize of 6 nights in Vietnam from Odynovo. Originally planned to be taken in April 2020, Covid intervened and the trip was finally able to be enjoyed in September 2022.
Consultant Owen Zhou was very patient and extremely competent in planning the visit along with some extras.
The time on the Athena cruise boat on Halong Bay was most luxurious and enjoyable, the side trips arranged were excellent and the food particularly the dinner was wonderful.
Every member of the staff were most helpful and friendly.
Thank you Athena and thank you Odynovo for this wonderful trip.

Spent a day and night on the Bay as part of a longer group tour. It was incredible. We cruised the bay, went kayaking, sat on the deck and watched the stars, and laughed at the terrible karaoke howls from the nearby boats. In summer 2022 it still seems quiet post Covid. A must do bucket list item!

We joined 2 hour cruise during rainy day but it was awesome
The walking to one of the cave was ok, many steps, good for exercise
However we wish halal foods are easier to find here in Halong Bay, Hanoi and Sapa

Exceptional and truly special and unforgettable. There is of course a risk of over tourists but we managed to be quite lucky. Spectacular

I went to visit Halong Bay as part of a one night cruise. The bay itself is nice - though having explored Thailand a bit before coming to Vietnam, the island structures were very much the same. There was a cave we got to explore as part of the tour. In the past when I have explored caves in other countries, I've appreciated the "untouched" feel of them. The large cave in Halong Bay however very much looked like it was designed for tourism, and kind of lost its "natural" appeal. It was also very crowded and somewhat difficult to appreciate the environment because of that.
Not a regrettable experience per se, but your money can be better spent elsewhere.
