        Insight was not the first local agency that I contacted. Through WhatsApp, the rep of the first agency which also receives an overall high praise at TripAdvisor always responded to me that he would check and get back to me “soon”, but every time the “soon” was over a week, and after I had to keep reminded him. I couldn’t help but thinking maybe that was the way how the travel agencies in Vietnam work – high promise, low delivery. The suites on Emperor Cruise I intended to book has 3 price tiers, the particular suite that I requested is under the 2nd tier, but grouped under the 3rd tier on the agency’s website, I therefore asked the rep to clarify. When I reminded him for a feedback after over a week, he asked me to book directly with the cruise company!!! Luckily he did that to me, or I wouldn’t have had contacted Insight Travel which gave me a total opposite impression. Through WhatsApp, Sophie of Insight Travel always offered prompt responses, even after her working hours. Not only the service was excellent, the prices she offered on both Emperor Cruise and Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi were also good deals; the food tour, despite being free, was a thumb-up as well. When I was in Hanoi, Sophie made sure I didn’t miss my programs. She checked with the food tour guide if I was OK, and checked with me the next morning if I was well on the cruise shuttle bus. I highly recommend Insight and Sophie. Insight 不是我一開始聯絡的旅行社,原本聯絡的旅行社在TripAdviser也有高評價,但每次回覆一個訊息都超過一個星期,且經常都是在我發文催促之後,最後還索性叫我自己跟船公司訂房。原本很擔心是否當地旅行社都是這種工作態度,後來找上Insight, 由Sophie跟我聯絡,處理事務態度完全不一樣,回覆問題既迅速又細心,提供的飯店及郵輪房間的價格都漂亮,連贈送的小吃行程都不馬虎,讓人極為滿意。

Untouched beauty with routes off the beaten track

Halong Bay is one of Vietnam’s most stunning attrations - there is no way to describe Halong Bay other than as purely breathtaking. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site and natural wonder of the world, the bay features thousands of limestone islands and cliffs emerging from the turquoise sea. Ha Long bay is translated into “where the dragon descends” Nowadays, Ha Long is too popular and crowed. So we find the way to cruise in Bai Tu Long. Bai Tu Long means “the place where the dragon children descended’. Adjacent, smaller and quieter, for many its untouched beauty surpasses than Ha Long bay. Rich in biodiversity, with a pristine environment and blessed with a marvelous landscape, the bay is dominated by thousands of limestone karsts and islets which rise out of the waters of the bay. It is dotted with floating villages, unspoiled beaches, caves and grottoes and tiny coves where you can hide to unwind and be a Robinson Crusoe for the day.
