  • I stopped by when I took part in a day cruise in Halong Bay. It is a place where you could ride a bamboo boat or kayak. Even if it is not included in the tour, you can participate if you pay 100,000 dong. I think that it is better to participate in this island because there is nothing else to do. In the case of the kayak, the aunt will paddle in the case of the bamboo boat. The bamboo boat is a four-seater. It seemed to go to the cave in reality, but when I went there was not enough water in the cave, so I only saw a hole in the cave from outside. Finally, I promise to give a tip to the lady of the boat. My aunt wants a chip, so she takes a picture while she rides. It was quite fun.
