Trip to Vietnam to start the year, just became awesome with mesmerising view, scenery and Kayaking experience amidst the Bai Tu Long bay with Starlight Cruise. Awesome! Hospitality and food (Vegeterian/Non-vegeterian)with fun activities like kayaking through floating fishing village, Pearl farm, Squid fishing, Karaoke night and finally to call it a day; nothing like Jacuzzi and good clean rooms. Our guide Jackie as in Jackie chan(not his real name..) though was very helpful and Informative on our way to cruise from hotel with history of Hanoi city and Vietnam.

Good experienced with starlight cruise for 2 days 1 night. I enjoy the actives held by the cruise such as the fishing and cooking it was a memorable experience I could never forget as I manage to learn new delicious recipes. However I would appreciate if the room were organised a little bit better as it was a bit messy. I also hope that u would do something about the loud sound of the jacuzzi as it disturbed those whom want to sleep when others want to enjoy in it. All in all in was a good experience…Thank you.
