    Day 1 Ha Long

    July 24, 2017 in Vietnam

    Bus arrives at 7.45 for the 4hour trip.
    Guide explains that Vietnam was 100% clised communist state for nearly 10years, finishing in 1986. Everyone paid the same, most in vouchers. But this didn't work as productivity fell ... Lazy farmers paid the same as hard working farmers so why work hard!
    We do for coffee at disabled factory where they're making lovely embroidery clothes bags and marble sculptures.
    Arrive at the port about 12.30 and board the boat. It is and older style boat but beautifully decorated with dark wood. Cabin is a good size, air-conditioned with ensuite ... what more could you ask.
    Lunch is served as soon as we set sail ... 5 course mostly seafood. Very nice.
    The weather is warm but overcast. Lovely scenary but the water is quite polluted with plastic bags, polystyrene etc.
    We stop at an island with truely spectacular cave system.
    Then another island for short, steep walk to a view point then down to a beach for a swim.
    Cocktails on the deck followed a by a lovely meal, again mostly seafood.
    Tried our hand at squid fishing ... Not very successful but others caught a couple.

    From Ninh Binh to Hanoi

    August 20, 2017 in Vietnam

    We looked for a way to get from Ninh Binh to Hanoi. Trains seats where booked out and train sleeping beds could not be booked on the Vietnamese Railway website since the payment was not accepted. So we asked in Ngoc Hanh Hotel and good a Shuttle Bus at around 5.30 pm for only 130.000 each. The bus was quite luxury and the ride very relaxing.
