My partner and I wanted to splurge on a Halong Bay two night Cruise and Mai Linh helped us book the Exclusive Suite on the beautiful Orchid Cruise which did not disappoint! We were picked up in a luxury van which made the 2hr long drive so comfortable. It was air conditioned and had multiple ports to charge your mobile phones or tablets.

Highlight of our entire trip! Highly recommended with a min. 3D 2N stay, if not for the hiccups during our canoe session, it will be a perfect 10 from us!

Due to the packed itinerary and especially dealing with children. The canoeing is too rush and poorly organized as not all children in our group knows how to canoe which cause some anxiety among the parents.
