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.

The Halong Bay cruise on the other hand, is totally on another level and I strongly imply that one have to at least experience the place where "dragon descend" in one's lifetime.
