This trip just gets you a glimpse of the Bay, bit it's a full 24 hours,
sleeping on the bay in the tranquility of Nature with Sunrise and Sunset.
The typical tourist Ha Long package is just as long, but includes a hotel
and a four-hour boat trip to a heavy traffic tourist island, something like
James Bond Island tours in Thailand, only two days long.
Better you take a three or four-day trip to see the Bay in greater detail,
but for tight schedules or budgets, this is the best way to see the Bay.
