Hanoi - Halong BayOctober 3 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C
Today we were picked up at the hotel in a bus to head out to Halong Bay. Today was the first day we had rain and it rained for most of the trip. We got out to the boat at 12.30 and it stopped raining. We have some nice people on board with us - New Zealand x 4, Saudi Arabia x 3, America x 5, Poland x 1 and a couple more. We had lunch then at 3 hopped onto the tender to see a cave. The cave was impressive but the amount of tourists is horrible! Then we went to another of the limestone rocks and climbed the 420 steps to the top and then had a swim - definitely did not put our heads under!
We had dinner then Mark tried his luck squidding (unsuccessfully) however jagged two fish about 3cm long.
It is really beautiful here. It looks like a town at night with all the lights on the boats.Read more
