    We had a cracker of a day we started by filling up on the biggest breaky at our hotel the Hilton before hitting the streets to explore! We started to head towards the lake where on Sunday’s all the streets around the lake are closed off for children’s games, and stalls alone with small cars being driven all over the roads by small humans hahaha! After we had a look around and went to a small museum where there were some pictures about we headed back to meet or tour guide Max to get everything organised for our Sarpa and Halong bay tours, well isn’t Max a crazy fella! He is an Aussie who had lived in Vietnam for 25 years now and I think he may be slightly cray cray! After meeting mad Max, his partner Tewy and his little dog Foxxy. We headed back to the hotel where we had pizzas and baby burgers around the pool, we had a swim and a few drinks before heading back to our room to get ready to go out for the night! We went to the night markets and had a bit of a shop then headed to a place that Max suggested, well it was up a very long and dark ally so we went right in and we were the only non Asian people in there so we figured it would be alright! It was a funny as a circus when Heidi barely could eat the chips because we walked through the kitchen and cleanliness wasn’t quite up to scratch hahaha but that didn’t stop the rest of us glenn lost his shit when he seen people around us eating fried dove and all! He was almost crying because the chilli prawns were so hot! After dinner we headed out for more shopping to a huge 8 story shopping centre then back to the hotel to hit the sack ready for tomorrow’s adventures!Read more
