Vacation Photos: Ha Long Bay

In case you’re wondering, we did not go to Vietnam again recently. Our trip to Hanoi back in July included a visit to Ha Long Bay, I just had not found the time to post the pictures yet.

Can you believe I lost my white hat on the trip? I didn’t even know where exactly, I just couldn’t find it back home. My mom used to say I would lose my head if it weren’t screwed in.

In the afternoon, we went to visit a naturally-formed cave on one of the rocks. The cave had 3 chambers, each bigger than the previous one, and the final one was breathtakingly huge! If you think it looks huge on the picture, wait till you stand inside it!

The tour guide then took us to the only man-made beach in Ha Long Bay. It was rather sad, very small, and the water wasn’t clean. It didn’t stop people from getting into the water and having fun though. I opted to stay on the shallow end, but Luis did take a quick swim.

Then we took a boat ride back to a junk named Cristina Deluxe and stayed overnight. Ha Long Bay is definitely a must at least once in your life. You wouldn’t see such karst formation anywhere else. But that concludes Vietnam for me, and I don’t see much reason for coming back.
