Nice trip

We cruise for around 6 hours in Halong Bay. First, we visit a cave. Then visit an island for swimming. And last, we go kayaking (need an extra fee) in the bay. All the activities were fun. I had a great time with my friend.

All good

The trip is nice. First, we visited a stunning cave then visited Titop Island with a pretty beach.
In the afternoon, we went kayaking, which was really fun. Although short, I had great moments.

A great experience on this cruise. The quality of the ship is 1st-class. The staff are also very kind. The restaurant is large and spacious. It was noisy at the start of the meal as there were many guests. The food tastes very good.
I recommend it to travelers who want to come to Halong Bay for a day. I believe you will not regret it.
