The tourist office in Halong City is a joke. The shelves are empty without brochures or maps and all they offer is to things that must be paid for. Something a bit contradictory for a place that wants to be one of the 7 wonders of the world. They offer 30 minutes of free Internet in exchange for voting for Halong Bay in the 7 Natural Wonders of the World. The results are practically 0 when getting info from people working there. The only interesting thing the tourist office offers is the ability to admire a 3D model of Halong Bay . The tourist office in Halong City is on the pier where boats leave all to Halong Bay.
