If you are staying longer in Hanoi, you would have a great opportunity to visit Hanoi Opera House. And don’t be surprised to hear your favorite melodies from Verdi, Puccini, Vivaldi…

High fashion is not a stranger in Hanoi.  We witnessed a fashion photo session in front of the Hanoi Opera House.

Hanoi is a base for the side trip to Ha Long and Bai Tu Long Bay cruises, also UNESCO Heritage Site.  Ha Long Bay was on our bucket list for some time, and dream came true.

We booked a Ha Long Bay cruise and got upgraded for free to the luxury Dragon Legend line by Indochina Junk.

On the 2nd day of our Ha Long Bay cruise we visited Dau Go Cave. It was a misty morning; however the view from the top was amazing.


Don’t miss Ha Long Bay!
