My visit to Halong Bay

My visit to Halong Bay

We left Hanoi on a shuttle bus with our tour guide Khoa and 10 other tourists. It took about 3 hours and a half to arrive to Ha Long. We stopped for a 20 minute short break on the way at a handicraft center. The bus journey was great even it was a long distance. […] Read more >>
Tour 3 days in Halong Bay

Tour 3 days in Halong Bay

We opted to take a three day and two night trip into the World Heritage Site of Halong Bay. Boarded our junk in Halong City in the chaotic port and eventually negotiated our way out of the harbour. We stopped at the largest cave in the bay and some time wandering around the caverns listening […] Read more >>

A trip to Halong Bay

It is almost time for us to leave Vietnam and we are getting very excited about journeying into China. Before that though, here is what we’ve been up to in the last week or so. From Hanoi we booked a trip to Halong Bay. As a general rule we try to stay away from organised […] Read more >>

Enjoy a view in Halong

When we arrived in Vietnam, we arrived at the Hanoi airport at about 4 or 5 in the afternoon, it was hotter than a you-know-what like Thailand. From there we had a three-hour drive to Ha Long City, which is basically a new city by the bay whose sole purpose is to cater to tourists. […] Read more >>

Halong Bay – The Beautiful Place

Go to Halong Bay

Our tour bus left only a couple of hours after our train reached hanoi at 5:30am leaving us enough time for a shower back at the Hanoi Elegance. We were fortunate enough to have only 3 Americans on our tour who could easily be overlooked, and to have a really sociable group of Europeans couples […] Read more >>

Halong Bay Sailing

Our tour of Halong Bay departed at 8am so we requested a very early wake-up call. You might think this was out of excitement for the day’s excursion—in reality, we didn’t want to miss any Q.T. with our butlers. We were seated at our regular table and greeted warmly by our staff. So not to […] Read more >>
Discover Catba Island

Discover Catba Island

We had an early start to leave Hanoi and head for Halong Bay, where we were going to stay on Cat Ba island. The bus ride was uneventful to the pier; we stopped on the way at a supermarket in a half-finished mall in the middle of nowhere. There were one or two empty shops […] Read more >>
Morning in Halong Bay

Morning in Halong Bay

Left Hanoi first in the morning and took a 3 hour bumpy bus to Halong bay. When we got there it was straight on to the boat. The boat was pretty cool, it was old school but had a cool roof terrace with chairs and benches. We had a bit of lunch before the boat […] Read more >>
