    Nimh Binh - Phong Na

    October 6 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Before leaving the bar last night we met two Vietnamese families who were keen to practice their English with us. After walking back to the train station, the same thing happened. Parents bring their children there so they can have English conversations. They had to stay there until 10pm talking to people.
    Our train was much more modern than the one we took to Sapa but was still quite noisy with a very firm mattress. We had to get off the train at Dong Hoi so set out alarm for 5.45. We did not need it though. We were collected from the station at driven to our accommodation and luckily for us, they let us check in as our room was ready. This meant a shower which was pretty exciting!!
    We were collected for our tour of Paradise and Phong Na cave. They were both incredibly beautiful- Paradise is a dry cave, Phong Na is a wet cave.
    We had a swim when we got back and dinner with Tony, Tim and Claudia who we shared the boat with in Halong Bay.
