Halong Bay vs. Bai Tu Long Bay

Jump to last reply

We are looking at a 2-night cruise with Indochina Junk in July, primarily because our understanding is that they miss a lot of the "traffic" in Halong Bay and go further north to Bai Tu Long Bay.

Evidently the boats leave from Hon Gai (is that in Halong Bay?)

So...lots of questions - will we "miss" anything major or beautiful scenery by not staying with a boat primarily traveling through Halong Bay?

Is Ba Tu Long Bay as beautiful?

Is choosing a company based on this lesser-traveled route a good idea?

Thanks for any more tips and recommendations!

Stephanie
