I had a nice trip in North Vietnam

The tour was interesting, it included many activities. I really enjoyed the trekking time in Sapa. The route was easy enough and I saw a lot of amazing things about the ethnic culture here. Halong Bay was gorgeous but the cabin on the cruise was quite small, but the services were excellent, the cruise staff was so nice and our cabin was clean and comfortable.

My family did this trip last week and luckily the weather condition was prefect. We visited Hanoi, Ninh Binh, Sapa & Halong bay with Heritage cruise Binh Chuan. All accommodations were nice and great location. We loved the boat ride via Tam Coc in Ninh Binh. Highly recommend this trip to discover all beauty of North Vietnam.
