I wasn’t really sure how to judge Ha Long bay in Vietnam. On the one hand its some of the most amazing sights I have seen. On the other its touristville. Whether you explore as part of a tour or do it on your own having to book on tourist ships there is no escape.
So instead of telling you to go or not. I thought sharing some key pictures of what you will see would help with the decision.
