This is the second time we visit Halong bay so want to visit further part. David tran travel booked the Lan ha legend cruise for us with good price & that’s amazing. The Lan Ha bay is so clean and quiet and less touristic than...More
We were recommended to book our cruise through this company and stayed on a small junk boat – it’s basic but nice in traditional wooden.
The tour guide & shuttle bus picked us up at our hotel in Hanoi on time. We were treated like...More
The Lan ha bay was very beautiful & less touristy than Halong bay. We did 3 days/ 2 nights with Lan ha legend cruise. That's small wooden boat of 9 cabins, a bit old but very good with reasonable prices & services. We loved 2nd...More

We picked a one day tour and had a great experience. Lan Ha Bay is beautiful. Try to find a tour leaving at 7.30am, 30 minutes earlier than others, so you can enjoy without too much other tourist boats. We went kayaking and swimming and...More
We spent a magical day cruising with Cat Ba Express Tours. For 500,000 dong (about $22 USD) we spent the entire day exploring Lan Ha Bay. We swam, snorkelled and kayak and cruised through this stunning area. The tour provided a wonderful boat where we...More
This's by far among the best experience I have already had. The Lan Ha Bay is very gorgeous and in case you've the opportunity, do not wait going below. We actually saw a few of fish that exist. Obviously, this place has to be more...More
Pristine, Romantic & Tranquil are all the 3 adjectives to describe this area.

I arranged everything myself using Tripadvisor do book room at Xinh Floating house.I stayed at Xinh Floating house three nights (this is a very simple place, I visited during the dry season they had almost no water left since they collect rain water in about ten big plastic tanks, a shower might not be a good thing). I still do recommend staying with the Xinh family at their floating house. They prepare excellent food, Internet is available but there is no Electricity 220 VAC or 110 VAC only battery power. If one is prepared for a little simpler life than in a hotel this is an absolute wonderful place to visit. The family does not speak English but Mr. Xinh has a brother so he will call him for help. Explain what you want and the brother explains for Mr. Xinh. I did four different tours in Mr. Xinhs boat to three different parts in La Ha bay and Halon Bay. These are absolute fantastic boat journeys one day a kayak was brought with the boat so one could visit Cat Ba national park in a Kayak. The near surroundings of Xinh floating house is very good for kayak tours. You can easily spend several days in this fantastic landscape if you are prepared to stay in a little simple room for a while. You will find Xinh Floating house on Tripadvisor. You ca easily travel from Hanoi to Cat Ba with Cat Ba Exspress it takes about four hours with departure at 11:00. This is a nice cheap bus journey which a do recommend. Book one night in Cat Ba town go to Cai Beo next day and Mr Xinh will come with his boat and pick you up! You can pay at Cat Ba Climbing in Cat Ba and the brother will take you in his car to Cai Beo. This tour is a memory for a life time but not for everyone!
