I met a lot of monkeys in the mangrove forest, and there were also Vietnam War ruins. It's like a monkey who loves glasses, so be careful if you wear glasses! The guide's English was easy to understand and fun! Thank you

The Cruise was excellent, as well as the destination of Cat Ba and Lan Hay bay (much less crowded than Halong Bay but equally beautiful).

Excellent performance. Lovely staff, and available. Very comfortable room
