Ha Long Bay

People around here say that Ha Long Bay is the place where the Dragon rests. And boy, is this place majestic and beautiful.

Along this vast body of emerald water are thousands of islands that seem to have been called up from under the earth to look out over the ocean. There was a mist when we were cruising around and it just added to the overall surreal feel of the experience.


When we got there they let us choose our own junkboat. We picked the most magnificent one. (Which was not very much more magnificent than the second most magnificent one :p)

There are stops on bigger islands along the way, where there are hiking trails and caves.

You can also hang out inside the ship’s small rooms. Same view, less chilly air.

Vendors come around and approach the boat, selling fish and fruits.

This is on one of the floating fishing villages (interesting stuff)

Of course, it didn’t take long for Johanna to take over and commandeer the ship. Arrr!
