s a beautiful place to visit and service provided is absolutely wonderful but we were not that lucky as couple of the activities need to be cancel because of the fog. I just have to say that journey to halong bay and return is rather suffering as the road condition really need to be upgraded. Other than that, we have enjoyed a splendid and jaw dropping experience at halong bay.
