Halong Bay in Northeast Vietnam – This was without a doubt, the highlight of our trip so far!!!
We organized a 3 day/2 night tour of the bay through travel agent in Hanoi & were collected from our hotel at 8am. From here we drove 3 hours to Halong Bay where we boarded our boat and were immediately treated to a big lunch before being given our room keys (We would spend the first night on their boat & the second night on Cat Ba Island). We then set sail through the most breathtaking scenery imaginably while sitting on deck with a cold beer(s). We stopped at ‘Surprising Cave’ where we wandered through the many rock formations (Oh how i wish i had brought some beer with me), before we climbed what felt like 342 million steps to a viewpoint overlooking the bay. The view was well worth the effort though. After another 2 hours
