seaplane and cruise
We rated this package excellent for all Korean couples and families of two or three. The panoramic view of Halong Bay from a seaplane was breathtaking to amaze every eye. Plus, we admired the richness on Paradise Luxury Cruise. Its facilities look very expensive for the kinglike stay. About dining, seafood meals won 100 scores for their freshness and taste.

Things went very good
It was my pleasure to vote this package very good. I enjoyed the fast, comfortable fly from Hanoi to Halong Bay with two colleagues from US. The view from a seaplane was panoramic and uninterrupted. Such a beautiful view! Plus, the accommodation, meal and facility on Jasmine Cruise met our expectation for a luxurious rest on board. Things went very good.

Highly recommend
The seaplane trip from Hanoi to Halong Bay was very fast and interesting. Our group of six Americans chartered a seaplane as we loved flying as free birds together. Yes, we did it. The experience was super-duper. Also, the 2-day stay on Paradise Peak Cruise was absolutely comfortable and perfect. We voted 5 stars for ritzy amenities, welcoming cruise staffs.
