—————————————-

We were actually meeting another friend of ours in Vietnam. If you ever need to stay in Hanoi, I definitely recommend the Charming II in the Old Quarter. I don’t have any pictures, but the ones on the TA site are true to their pixels.

As for Hanoi itself … we stayed here as a jumping off point for Ha Long Bay, though the city is great to visit in itself. Enough talking, more pictures:

Street-side Pho Ga

This looks safe

Water Puppet Show

Bikes everywhere

And I mean everywhere …

It’s hard to describe the beauty of Ha Long Bay in words. This has been on my sister’s bucket list for a long time. This has been on my bucket list after seeing the Top Gear Vietnam Special. So you can see how differently we think …

Anyway, some photos from Ha Long Bay below:

Big enough to hold 8 pax + crew. Booked this through our hotel.
