Ha Long Bay – Vietnam is a must see destination if you are traveling to Vietnam. It has to be one of the natural wonders of the world. There is no way to explain the beauty that lies in the Ha Long Bay. The pictures we took are beautiful but, never come close to what we seen with our eyes. The Tu Linh Legend Hanoi Hotel helped us setup up this tour for us. After breakfast at the hotel our tour guide and bus picked us up and drove us to our port. When we arrived at the port the guide purchased the tickets and passed them out.
Our captain lead us to a boat similar to the one in the picture. Not huge but, comfortable for a small group. We sat down in the lounge of the boat where we had the rules explained to us and got our room key. Soon we got to check out our room to find it clean and comfortable.
There are a lot of these tour boats sailing the area. We sail off into the bay and it seems like every time you turn your head you find a new wonder to look at.
This is only a start to the many pictures you can take so keep looking. I was so amazed.
I could set up here all day looking out over the bay. It’s almost like a kaleidoscope of mountain tops that keep changing as we sail by.
I am sure you could visit Ha Long Bay year after year and see new views every time.
This is a fishing village, people here fish for a living. They live here in the bay and raise their families. It’s a neat sight to see how people survive in Vietnam. Our guide on this trip told us that the government was building these people homes in the cities and they would have to give up living here in the bay. Sad part of it is that this is all they know and soon they will be on land trying to make a living.
