Halong bay is famous for its beautiful caves and limestone karsts attracting thousands of tourists all over the world. There is no better way to see the aerial view of the bay than from a helicopter. Cruising will give you a chance to gaze at the horizon, but the view might not be appealing since there are too many karsts and islands in the bay. At the cost of $650/pax for a 2 ways trip from Hanoi to Halong, visiting Halong Bay will be an unforgettable experience.
