Good: "Very good trip, with nice guide and the boat was also great, with wooden cabins and air cond.
Boats actually are painted with white colour instead of being of wood. We were told that this was because of gobernment recommendations.
"

Bad: " Kayaking was also great, but the water in Halong bay was not as clear as we expected."
