British newspaper The Independent recommends a three-day trip to Hanoi and Ha Long Bay as a great, affordable travel option.

The trip is included in a list of favorable travel options priced from 128-1,026 USD.

For 384 USD, 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.

Hanoi and Long Bay are among Vietnam’s most prominent tourism attractions. 

Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital city, is a major social and cultural center. It carries its ancient history and modernity with a special charm. It’s cuisine, on and off its streets, is continually raved about.

Located in Quang Ninh province, Ha Long Bay comprises 1,600 islands and islets, and is one of the most mesmerizing natural complexes in the world. Beautiful beaches, caves and floating villages make the bay a must-visit destination in Vietnam./.-VNA
