From Hanoi we organized a day trip to Halong Bay through an agency. I do not really understand what we can see more in that two-day stay, except to sleep on a boat in the bay and wake up there. What we saw in one day was enough for us. Scores at 7:30 from Hanoi after about 3 hours we arrived at the destination and embarked.In the organization there was also a lunch on board, well organized and served. caves on an islet and are truly spectacular and scenic. Then they visit the upper part of another small island where you can see a unique show and a boat area where there are monkeys on one of these magnificent rocks. The show is really unique, it's worth going.
