Halong Bay Cruise....Wow what a place-Emerald green waters surrounded by jungle covered mountains bobbing in and around the waters of the sea. We stayed on a replica junk boat and were taken around the Bay by our Mexican tour guide David (very Pirates of the Carribean)! Had a great time meeting people from places as far as USA, Amsterdam and Newcastle! Its good to share experiences and tips with other backpackers...and play the odd drinking game too! Unfortunately we werent allowed to kayak because the weather was turining sour (yet the sea was calm)?! However, for the Top Gear fans among you, we did see the floating bar that Clarkson and Co visited-very remote! Really enjoyed the trip and felt privileged to watch the sunset over the mountains-a truly unforgettable sight.
