Halong Bay Boat Cruise - Hanoi, Vietnam

We boarded the boat for an amazing lunch. They served a big bowl of rice, fried shrimps, sweet and sour fish, some veggie and meat dishes, and some fruits. Drinks of any kind are extra.
We cruised on the bay for about an hour to a Surprising Cave. After the cave came an hour of kayaking and an hour of swimming.

Our dinner was pretty much the same as lunch. Our room for the night at the boat was a lot better than any of our rooms we've had in any guesthouses.

Next day comes, and everybody was wondering what would happen next. Well, everybody ended-up staying on the boat... nobody went to Catba Island. And everybody seemed to be cool with it.
The boat was not running, nobody was doing anything but stare at the horizon, so i dared some of the guys to jump off the boat into the water. The guys accepted, so damn, I had to go in as well. It was at least a fun way to end a relaxing trip.

When we got back to the port, again came the long wait. It's really painful when you don't know what you're waiting for and how long the wait would be. The guides, no matter where you book your tour pass you around to different people to take care of you. We got transferred to a total of five guides for this trip alone. So when they say "wait", that means you will more likely to meet a new guide.
Another hour had passed and our ride home arrived. On our way back to Hanoi, we had our last free lunch at a vietnamese restaurant, and their last shot on making us spend some more money at another handicraft store.

This was also the best holiday that I’ve been on in many many years. Vietnam was just wonderful. We had a memorable holiday and one that I am still buzzing about today.
