Ha Long Bay

Ha Long Bay is one of those places that you just have to go to if your in Vietnam. Like the Eiffel tower if you’re in Paris or the Colosseum when you’re in Rome. It’s one of the seven wonders of the world. So of course it is very beautiful, very expensive, and over run by tourists.

I booked a 2 days/1 night trip on a boat that would make a small circuit around the bay. You sleep on the boat, and eat all your meals on the boat. There is a little bar and a nice rooftop area to hang out on. There were only 7 other people on the boat with me. A nice couple from Holland, a couple from Canada, a couple from New Zealand, and then a random French guy who was my roommate.

The boat was great and the food was fantastic! Every couple of hours we would stop and get out and do some activity like exploring a cave, hiking up a big hill, kayaking, and swimming. It was really lovely.

Hope you like photos! It was a little cloudy when I was there, but still very beautiful. Enjoy!
