Elaine and Peter’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 02 Feb 2013

Location: Halong Bay, Vietnam

MapThis morning was spent cruising the Bay. We didn't get to see sunrise as there is fog each morning which burns off as the morning progresses. We were very interested in the floating villages complete with their bank, fisheries and shops. The Bay reverberates with the sound of drum beating..which comes from the fishermen in the little rowing boats beating sticks on the sides of the boats in order to drive the fish into the nets I dragging behind.
And then later today, we sadly left the junk and drove back to Hanoi for our last night in Vietnam.
