I'm going to be in Vietnam in November and am really excited to see Halong Bay and am traveling alone. I plan on using the time on the boat to completely relax and really would prefer to have my own room on the junk boat.
Has anyone done this before? It looks like the fee structure is per person and so would I have to pay for the number of beds in the room? I also heard that you can pay a "surplus" which I'm assuming is an extra fee added to the original cost. How much more is this? Would I need to book in advance or could I just book something (with my own room) upon arriving in Hanoi? Any help on this one is much appreciated! Thanks in advance. :-)
