is it to rushed to arrive in Hanoi then book and go on a halong bay boat trip the next day
If you want to go on a specific junk then it would be better to book beforehand, otherwise your hotel will easily be able to book you on a tour for the next day.
Peter its not too rushed but risky. It all depends on the relationship between hotel and junk operator. Some such connections often come with difficulties , scams etc. Also bear in mind its 4 hours each way to get to the junk wharf.
I would pick a cruise online from Cronulla and book it direct . Pay for the higher end cruises as the cheap ones are just that cheap and often nasty.
