Halong Bay

After the tragic incident in Halong Bay today, I’d like to advise those booking packages to Halong Bay to not pay rock bottom prices as health and safety standards are sometimes sacrificed for profit. There are however some fantastic junks out there who do have proper health and safety standards so don’t be put off. I I will add a Halong Bay section with reputable companies, but I wouldn’t pay less than US$70 per person per night for a tour otherwise you may be going with an operator who doesn’t follow proper safety procedures and also the service will be sacrificed for profit. Meanwhile, my sincere sympathy to friends and family of those who died this morning.
