Iconic Halong Bay Restaurants That Every Visitor Should Check Out (Part 3)


Going on your Halong Bay tours for the very first time? We, not surprisingly, have some ideas on what to do. Firstly, be well-prepared to be on very popular terms with cruise experience, whether it is a night cruise or a 3-day-2-night cruise. Secondly, do not leave Halong Bay without taking part in an array of outdoor activities like swimming, sunbathing, diving, kayaking, etc., even if your Halong tour is limited to 24 hours. In no way could it ever bring the fun. Thirdly, maybe don’t do anything else but sample Halong’s cuisine, especially fresh seafood?

With a whole lot of awesome restaurant options to sort through, you might find it hard to choose just only address to check out. Hope that our recommendations will lead you.
