We are somewhat happy at the same disappointed with our transportation Air Asia. They canceled our flight KUL - Hanoi without informing us, but in the end they manage to take us to Hanoi through Bangkok. It was a hectic day but still acceptable.
We are very happy with our choice of hotels!
Corus Hotel in Kuala Lumpur
Beautiful room, good breakfast, great location. Walking distance to Petronas and MRT.
Hanoi Elegance 4 in Hanoi
Super excellent service, small yet super clean room & bathroom, delicious breakfast. Walking distance to Hoan Kiem Lake!
We didn't join any tour in Hanoi accept for Halong Bay cruise.
Columbus Travel for Halong Bay Cruise
Disappointed at the beginning but very satisfied in the end. They have 3 junks. Pinta Gold (USD 99 per pax), Pinta Cruise (USD 85 per pax) and Nina Cruise (USD 167 per pax). These are their promotion rate. We choose the biggest boat Pinta Gold. When we arrive they said that Pinta Gold is not available due to maintenance and they downgraded us to Pinta Cruise with lower price (USD 72 per pax). When we actually at the boat, they said that the Pinta Cruise is already full so they move us to Nina Cruise (small private junk for honeymooners).
So after all the hassle we are happy that we pay the lowest price for the most expensive plus they kindly celebrate our daughter birthday with a big birthday cake and a bottle of sparkling wine. Thanks a lot for that!!
