Editor Reviews


+ Cabins are clean, neat, and the bed is comfortable.
+ The service in the dining room is efficient.
+ Destinations are spectacular and less-crowded than Halong Bay.


- The limousine service is poor and it takes almost an hour waiting for the pick-up.
- Activities in the cave and beach area should be more organized.
- Breakfast could be improved.

Bottom Line

The traditional boat gives a quick way to see Bai Tu Long Bay and offers upscale experience at a fraction of the price.
