Ha Long Bay

Hola Amigos! Sorry it’s been unacceptably long since the last update. ¬†Attempts will be made to update frequently, which will hopefully alleviate procrastination born from dreading sorting through thousands of photos.

Here are some brief glimpses into a little 2 night trip we took to Halong Bay. If you’re on the fence about making the trip because of negative review you’ve read, hopefully this helps.

Yes it’s a bummer because at many junctures you can see garbage floating in the bay. It’s still pretty beautiful though and it was fun kayaking around and exploring little islands with beaches just big enough for a handful of people.

Even if the colored lights are a bit…not your style, this giant cave was found by some random French ladies and used as a shelter during “The American War”¬†

There were other boats in the vicinity during our boat sleepover. It kinda created a camp atmosphere!

We stopped by a pearl farm to learn how pearls are made. No one bought anything and our tour company never pressured us so it was a chill little stop.
