Deciding how to experience Ha Long Bay is definitely not easy. After hours of research I booked my tour with Handspan Travel and I could not be more satisfied with my decision. The tour included transportation, all meals and activities, and wonderful accommodations onboard a traditional junk boat. Handspan was a pleasure to work with via email prior to arriving in Vietnam and completely delivered on my expectations.
The experience onboard was top notch. From amazing meals and a cooking class, to water sports and tai chi, to comfortable rooms, no detail was spared. After watching the sunrise from the main deck before departure while sipping hot tea my only thought was that I wish I had booked two nights instead of one.
