The first glimpse I ever had of Halong Bay was while watching a James Bond movie many years ago.  Halong Bay is a must see on any visit to Hanoi and fortunately Helen Wong’s Tours had it as an inclusion on a recent tour I did through Vietnam.

The best way to experience this mystical location is by a cruise aboard a junk, that included a seafood lunch.

The cruise which lasted three hours was quite enough time to experience the tranquility of the Bay and observe the many massive towers arising from the seabed as we sailed on the calm tourquoise waters.

Even though there was a three hour trip by bus to get there from Hanoi, it was worth it.
