The End of a Perfect Day

    Prev Next

    One thing I have learned from my travels. One of the most important ingredients is a good local guide.

    His name was Duc. He was 28 years old and passionate about his country and, in particular, Halong Bay. He got more excited than we did (which means he got very excited indeed!)

    Let me describe the day………….

    After breakfast on deck aboard the junk, we spent the morning kayaking. We visited grottoes, sea caves and watched monkies watching us from the rocks.

    Then we kayaked to a secluded beach for a bit of swimming and sunbathing. Lunch was a delicious seafood barbecue right there on the beach beneath white sunshades.

    After an après lunch swim we kayaked back to the boat where it was all hands to the sundeck as we cruised across the bay to ………..

    One of the many islands. Here we were taken by a small boat to a tiny jetty with steps leading up to a large and beautiful cave.

    We spent maybe an hour in the cave then Duc led us out of another exit about 100 feet above a tiny beach …………………

    ………………….. just as the sun was setting.

    Thanks Duc.
