15There's no ferry from Macau to Halong Bay.
From Macau, you cross the border to Zhuhai. Then you can catch a bus (or maybe the light rail will be finished and open when you get there) to Guangzhou, then train to Nanning. Or one of the other suggested routes.
There was a spammer in the middle of the thread who posted wrong information about visas (now deleted), which is why there are lots of posts about Vietnam border visas. Basically make sure you have the Chinese visa before you go to Mainland China, and the Vietnam visa before you get to the China / Vietnam border.

16cheers for that, it did get a little confusing with all those posts in the middle of the thread there.
Shall get my applications in for China & Vietnam this week hopefully. Any one know the best methods to apply for them? I've spotted a few sites that seem to handle multiple visa applications but they want ~£35 for each country you're applying for which seems a tad steep.

19I wouldn't take the train from Nanning to Hanoi. I just did that last month, and the train gets you in at around 4:10 a.m. and lets you off on a dark street. You're at the mercy of a bunch of not very honest taxi drivers. Plus as it travels at night you can't see any scenery. I took the bus on the way back to China and it was great -- about the same price and reasonable hours.
