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.

We prefer an above-average hotel in Old Hanoi Quarter, and also an above-average room for our Halong Bay cruise with a private balcony. Also, my friend is a pescatarian (no red meat or chicken), but I have no diet restrictions. Please get back to me soon. Thank you.
