14 foreigners rescued as boat catches fire in Ha Long Bay, again

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

Has anyone on here ever visited Ha Long Bay?

If so, how was your experience?

A tourist boat carrying 21 people suddenly burst into flames near the Titop Island in Ha Long Bay, located in the northern province of Quang Ninh, but all passengers were safely rescued and returned to shore on Tuesday.

Been many times, the last time one month ago. It is nice though very crowded. Luckily, our boats spend the night away from all the other boats.
