In September 2018, I need to find a tour guide in Ha Long Bay. I happened to know Mr. Hieu- professional local guide. He specializes in making Ha Long, Cat ba island and Ha Giang tour. And I participated in both tours organized by him. They are very interesting.
Ha Long Bay in Vietnam
About Ha Long 2 days and 1night tour, I booked tour for my company. Mr. Hieu advised me enthusiastically. He really has thick knowledge about Ha Long, he knows each road, understands each location and introduces for me the best dishes of Ha Long.
Although we live in Hanoi- capital of Vietnam (away from Ha Long bay, about 170km), the car pick- up service he did very well. The car is clean and airy, the driver is cheerful and kind. We traveled by high way so we arrived early. Fortunately, Hanoi was rainy but Ha Long got dry and had a bit of sunshine.

When we arrived, he picked us up with his special motorbike. It looks so cool. Then he took us to the hotel. Our hotel he booked is quite luxurious and beautiful. It has good view and faces Ha Long bay.

Then we boarded a boat to visit Ha Long. Mr. Hieu bought us tickets and gave us. Wow, Ha Long Bay is really charming. Mr. Hieu introduced about history, geography, people, food, experiences of Ha Long Bay for us. Indeed, he understands and loves this place. Every story, every legend he told attracted us. Ha Long Bay has many beautiful landscapes, such as: Dog stone, Incense Stone, Thien Cung cave, … We were surprised by their beauty. We had lunch on boat. It has a lot of delicious dishes such as squid (specialty of Ha Long), grilled shrimp, braised fish, … He booked for us a good lunch. After eating, we relaxed in an hour. Seeing the beauty of Ha Long in the afternoon is very romantic.
After relaxing, we took part in kayaking. It is very exciting. I am afraid of water but I still participate in. Mr. Hieu don’t forget to tell us to wear life- jackets carefully. If you travel to Ha Long bay, you should try kayaking, it will be an interesting experience. Then, we visited Thien Cung cave. This cave is very gorgeous and mysterious.

Then, we come back our hotel and prepared for eating dinner. We ate at a Seafood restaurant. Mr. Hieu chose for us a restaurant near the bay. It is so good and has luxurious view. Seafood is quite delicious. We ate and told happily.
After dinner, Mr. Hieu took us to a dynamic club. We drunk together, listened and danced good dances.
I and my friends felt begin to get tired and want to go back our room, Mr. Hieu used his motorbike and took us to our room. We finished the first day of tour.
Next day, we had free time to visit Ha Long city, bathed and took a walk on the bay. He advised us the place to swim, to buy seafood. I and my boss borrowed his motorbike to walk on the bay. We had a great stroll.
In the afternoon, we participate in playing games at the Dragon park. You can join in fantastic games here. It’s very modern and interesting. Playing there for about 3 hours, we started to return to Hanoi and finish Ha Long tour.
