Lunch on Boat

As promised, we were served lunch shortly after the junk started to sail towards Halong Bay. It's basic Vietnamese culinary which very similar to Chinese culinary. On this junk (we later moved to another junk), the service was better. We were offered the towel napkin, and the table was properly covered. Yet, I didn't see any seafood lunch as promised by tour itinerary.

I guess when one pays peanut u get monkey. For us, we paid US$47 each for Halong Bay cruise, considered to be very expensive in backpacker's standard but we totally enjoyed our cruise. We were transported to Halong City in a small coach to ourselves(4) with a knowlegeable guide. In addition, we had the whole junk boat to ourselves with very sumptuous seafood lunch fit for the king. We visited awesome caves with our guide explaining to us the history & formation of the stalamites & stalgamites.

I wll be going to Hanoi next month. I am surprise of the tour price u got for the train ticket to sapa and Ho Long bay. The guest house quoted me 2/1n Sapa at USD$75/pax and Ha Long Bay 2d/1n at USD 35.00/pax. So much more exp than yours. Should i change ?
