Final destination in Vietnam. You wouldn't think its the capital city. We stayed in the old quarter which is pretty shabby but then a few streets down you have brand new funky juice bar and posh clothes shops! Very mixed. The day we were there everything was closed! Friday is not a good day to go to the museums in Hanoi! We just mooched around, went in a couple of cyclos. Chilled out.
Highlight was going to Halong Bay, had heard its stunning and a must see. Tour included a nights stay on a boat which was fun but it was so misty and drizzly i dont think we saw the wonder that its supposed to be! Anyway we got the gist and went in a pretty cool huge cave and went kayaking- in the mist and drizzle! Was quite cool, eerie and deadly quiet.
Next stop Vientiene, Laos.
