The Halong Bay in Hanoi, Vietnam has been one of the places that we have in our travel bucket list. The opportunity to visit Halong Bay came when we chanced upon a relative cheap deal by Vietnam Airlines for the Singapore National Day period. We were pleasantly surprised by the price we paid – SGD$240 for a return trip on the full service carrier (including 20kg luggage, meal and taxes) which was comparable to what one would have paid for a budget carrier!

Here’s our itinerary with some photos and links to our reviews for our trip.
