My Story:
I am Hien, I am a Ha Long citizen. I used to be a fishman to catch oyster and crab at Ha Long bay, I used to be a hotel employee in Ha Long city as well. When i worked for the hotels, I love to talk with tourists. There was a question I often to ask them 'what is the reason make you to come here Ha Long to visit?'. 100% peoples answer was 'Ha Long bay'. View House Rules

    Had a great experience! Hein is really lovely and helpful. The dinner is delicious and would highly recommend the one day cruise. She even let me use her laptop to do some work as I couldn’t find an Internet cafe.

    Halo Bay Homestay is amazing!!!! Chi Hien is the most lovely host - so friendly and welcoming, you really feel at home! I arrived on their special prayer day of the week, Chi Hien invited me to join in with her whole family in their mantra’s and prayers, followed by a feast which she let me help her prepare, as well as dinner, which I shared with her and her husband and son. She is super helpful in assisting you to get around and find the best activities to do! Absolute 10/10, such a great stay!

    Best Homestay in Vietnam so far! We really enjoyed the family dinner in the evening and we were happy to get some impressions of life in Ha Long and Vietnam. Hien and her husband are lovely and they really take care. The rooms are amazing and you can hear some birds singing all day!

    Absolutely wonderful stay here, and all of the family are so inviting and welcoming, which is easily the best quality of here. On our first night we were invited to a family dinner party with traditional dishes with the extended family, complete with homemade wine, party food and guitar. I can really recommend the boat trip here to see halong bay, and with the trip, you’re given a free walking tour. My favourite home stay so far, would definitely recommend!

    A very welcoming place. The owner invited all guests to dine with her and her friends as part of New Year which brought all guests together. The host is very passionate and knowledgeable of the area and gave a tour also with lots of helpful advice on travel ideas. 10/10 for making us feel at home.

    Even with the craziness of the New Year, Hien managed to make our stay very comfortable and easy. She was very attentive and welcomed us to spend the holiday with them! I would definitely come here again.

    My friend did get bitten by bed bugs, but hotel can’t be to blame. The lady was so kind and did warn us they had previously had them but they’d gone, she also gave us free cream to wear to prevent bed bugs and my friend didn’t wear it.
