Bus to Halong City with the Guide

We're picked up from our hotel at about 7.30 am. We then were brought to Vietnam Opentour office at 56 TranNhatDuat, HoanKiem Hanoi. I was not sure if it's the tour operator real name or not, but anyway I got some contact details:

Tel: 84-4-9284504
Email: travel@vietnamtourism.com.vn
Web: http://www.vietnamtourism.com.vn

Here, we changed to another bus that brought us to Halong City. As we're late, whole bus load of passengers waited for us. The bus got about 16 people, as it could fit such an amount of passengers only.


Our guide of the Halong Bay trip, Ha (or River in English). He was very responsible, only during the initial part of the trip. Here he introduced scenery of Hanoi and explained to us what to expect in Halong Bay.

In stark contrast with my trip to Egypt and Jordan, we met a lot of Singaporeans and Malaysians along the trip. Here we met with Lee York Tien from Malaysia who studies medicine in Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) and having internship in Hoi An Vietnam.
