I agree on this, Pham_yen! Just to add from your comments and information when you visit Halong Bay, recommending you to take a cruise and discover Halong Bay which has been recognized twice by UNESCO. Visit caves and experience local life on water. The cruise includes food on board and a knowledgeable tour guide who will assist you all through your trip. The best way to see the wonderful sceneries of Halong Bay is to explore it via cruising. The cruise will enable you to see all the best spot in Halong Bay which includes the best stalactites and stalagmites of Thien Cung and Dau Go caves. You will pass some rock islands, caves and spectacular beaches. 

You get to enjoy the crystal blue-green waves pounding to the cruise ship and make you feel like Jack Sparrow who aims for the golden treasure. Relax while adoring the picture perfect cliffs and mountainous islands that weren’t touched by any hunter. Thanks!
