The place has a fantastic landscape of many small islands (over 200 they say) covered by rocks and green, which create a […] Read more >>

We spent a half hearted day in Hanoi, purely booking our Halong Bay trip, which is supposed to be one of the highlights of northern Vietnam. A quick overnight and off we went on our three day trip.

Sailing round the islands

I knew Hanoi was going to be cold and I wish I’d brought a woolly hat and gloves. Went out early for some brekky before the tour picked us up and it was freezing but hopefully by the end of the week and our move south the fleece can be dispensed with and the bikinis […] Read more >>

Halong City Day 1 – Halong has this been going on

It was waking up in a nice room this morning and surrounded by several pillows with a plasma television on the wall that I realised the benefits of flying somewhere even if we had done so accidentally. After a brief play on the computer in our room we headed down for breakfast, which was a […] Read more >>
