I had a great cruise with Lavender in Ha Long Bay. It was a beautiful ship. I love how they decorated the sundeck, very pretty with colorful flowers. My guide Minh was amazing. He is very friendly, helpful and nice. Highly suggest this cruise for budget travelers.
Thank you very much!!

Have a wonderful time in Halong Bay

Everything was amazing. The boat is very cozy. The staff was kind and helpful. I love the trip to Luon Cave, kayaking there was very fun. Keep in mind that the bay is packed during summer, you should avoid traveling on the weekend.

Great overall

Halong Bay really has beautiful scenery. The weather is a bit hot during my stay but that was expected
