Halong Bay DiscoverySunday, April 15, 2012
In February 2012, I went on a short trip to Vietnam on Air Asia and visited Hanoi - Halong Bay. I booked the ground arrangement through a friend who is in the travel trade. We booked the ground arrangement with over night cruise onboard the Orient Sails. Built in 2007 in ancient Vietnamese style, Oriental Sails features 16 deluxe cabins of traditional styling combined with modern facilities and comfort. The boat boasts rattan & wooden furnishings, a multitude of windows for amazing views from the inside, and a panoramic upper deck allowing different activities with the beauty of Halong Bay as a backdrop.
Halong bay has twice been recognized by UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage Area for its exceptional scenic beauty and outstanding geological and geomorphic values.
