Vietnam – Ha Long Bay 1

No trip to Vietnam would be complete without a cruise through Ha Long Bay. This Unesco World Heritage Site is a bay off the northern coast of Vietnam that is filled with giant stone islands jutting out of the water. When you’re inside the bay they loom over you, so that the entire horizon is dominated by their overlapping shades of blue.

I spent two days in the middle of them all, living on this boat. It’s a traditional Chinese junk, and was absolutely gorgeous. I toured a cave, went swimming, hiking, and kayaking. More pictures of that next time!
