Vietnam Trip 2015 – Halong Bay

When people ask me what my favorite part of my trip was, I tell them for sure Halong Bay and also Trang An. I spent a lot of time researching the various Halong Bay cruises since there are so many out there that range from different prices and different itineraries.  I heard horror stories of food poisoning, trash floating in the water, and seeing views of just other cruise ships.  Fortunately, I stumbled upon Indochina Junk which is a company  that has its own route in Bai Tu Long Bay.  For all I know, Bai Tu Long Bay is next to and the same as Halong Bay, but has less cruise ships and tourists around.  This was definitely the one big splurge of our trip but it was 100% worth it.  The staff, food, rooms, activities, and views were all beyond amazing.

I can’t wait to do this cruise again. I’d love to take my parents someday!
