I had a great day in Halong bay with my family. The scenery was wonderful and I took a lot of pictures. We did three activities: hiking to the top of the island, rowing boat trip( quite short time) and visiting the Amazing cave. My guide Ms. Phuong was nice and helpful. I really recommend this tour company
