Ha Long Bay
We woke up early to watch the sunrise. And what a beautiful sight she was. Isn’t the natural world just the most amazing thing. It surprises me every single time. This place is just so beautiful.
We ate some breakfast on board while the boat started cruising to the Natural Preservation Zone.
From here we accessed some kayaks to explore the area.
Its just an amazing place to be in and something I am grateful to have done.
We then saw a floating Pearl Farm Village and learned the technique for making high quality pearls – maybe it is time for a new direction in career after all!
We visited a floating house and learned about the daily life of the local fishermen who live there.
Then we boarded the cruise again, refreshed, relaxed whilst exploring and taking in more of this stunning landscape. I love the landscape.
We passed by Ba Hang fishing village, Dog Islet and so much more…..
We then – be prepared to be shocked – took a cooking class!! We were taught how to make spring rolls, before having lunch and for the record mines tasted exceptional!
We cruised some more before it was time to check out and disembark at the harbour of Tuan Chau Marina.
I could have been doing with being longer on board the cruise as it had been so peaceful and beautiful but reluctantly we had to leave. We have so much else planned to see and do.
We head back to Hanoi dreaming of Ha Long Bay.
