Harmony Halong Bay

Harmony Halong Bay

Halong Bay was beautiful. The boat was fantastic and the food on the boat was great. Shame we had a visit from mr. rat in our cabin that night and Steve discovered that he’s allergic to shellfish so he was getting sick all night. Before he got sick we heard a screech and scratching behind […] Read more >>

7.30 am and time to wake up. We are off to the tourist destination in Northern Vietnam. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Halong Bay.

Around Catba Island

I slept really well last night on the boat. We arrived at Catba Island, the only inhabited island in Halong Bay this morning. Then we went for a 2 or 3 hour hike up to one of the peaks of the island. It was a great hike, but everyone was drenched, sweating buckets the whole […] Read more >>

We booked a 3 day boat cruise on Halong Bay, a Unesco World Heritage site. More than 3000 vegetative covered islands are visible in the waters and it is a very spectacular sight.

Good Time In Halong Bay

Good Time In Halong Bay

The first night we slept on the boat. I stayed up chatting to the Scotish guy Colum (who I thought was named Golum – Smeagle!)about the world and life etc. Before I knew it I had been locked out of my room and had to sleep on the roof of the boat. I didn’t care […] Read more >>
Halong Is Stuning

Halong Is Stuning

After breakfast we braced ourselves for another 4 hours of Vietnam’s roads and a halfway stop with locals selling wares. The journey was more comfortable and I would always recommend a private car for the trip. When we arrived our bags were taken and we were seated at the Paradise cafe, both had a Vietnamese […] Read more >>
