I plan my trip beginning (start point Ha Noi, end point - HCMC) and of course want to visit Ha Long bay. But I don't like to take excursions with big group.
As far as I understand, there is possible to hire junk boat (may be with 3-5 companions)right in Ha Long.
But I can't find information how can I get from Ha Noi to Ha Long. Regular bus? Train?
Any suggestions are welcome.
