For £300 ($384), a package tour that includes two nights in Vietnam’s capital city and an overnight stay on a cruise boat in the world-renowned natural heritage site Ha Long Bay, is great value for money, the newspaper said.

The spectacular Ha Long Bay.

The city’s cultural attractions include stately pagodas and churches, colonial French architecture, water puppetry, traditional music, beautiful tree-lined streets and the famous Old Quarter with its guild streets, not to mention a vibrant night life.

Located in the northern province of Quang Ninh, Ha Long Bay comprises 1,600 islands and islets, and is one of the most mesmerizing natural complexes in the world, with limestone formations rising spectacularly still blue-green waters. Beautiful beaches, caves and floating villages make the bay a must-visit destination in Vietnam.

The core area of Ha Long Bay was the first natural site in Vietnam to be listed as a UNESCO natural world heritage in 1994. The bay was also the set for the Hollywood blockbuster “Kong – Skull Island” (2017).
