One of the main reasons for visiting Hanoi, other than to see the capital itself of course, is to visit the widely heralded and even more widely photographed Ha Long Bay which is only a four hour bus trip away; a short jaunt in Vietnamese terms.

Cruising 2 Days In Halong

We spent 2 days cruising the limestone islands of Halong Bay. Our guide Tuan was erratic but hilarious. He held both our hands crossing the road before we even got on the bus to Halong City for the tour.
