Can anyone recommend a good hotel in Ha Long?
Sorry no,there is no real reason to stay there,may I ask why?
thanks for the question.
Answer is that we want to do a bay cruise but don't want to spend up to seven hours bus travelling out of Hanoi with just four hours actual cruising. So is there a Ha Long Bay Hotel close to cruise services that could give us an all day tour on the water?
I'm interested in this as well. I'd like to stay closer to where the boats depart. Are there any single day trips that leave early in the morning? I may also stay in Cat Ba to do the same.
Well, your problem is very simple : Halong Bay is stunning and cruising it just for a day makes very little sense ! Nothing more magic than to spend a night on a junk in the middle of the bay !
Or thenn, go to beautiful Cat Ba Island (2 hours bus Hnaoi-Haiphong + 1h speed boat), spend the night there, and take a cruise in Lan Ha Bay, same same Halong but less dirty because big junks cannot sail in it, too shallow
Halong is ugly !
