Halong Bay - An offshore paradise
Posted On Wed, Sep 25, 2013 by Vietnamdiscovery
To me, spending a couple of days flowing on the crystal waters of Halong Bay is really an unforgettable experience.

Hearing a lot about the natural beauty of Halong from my friends, I decided to book a Halong Bay tour for my summer holiday. Departing from Hanoi at around 8:30am, I arrive in Halong at noon. The sun is high in the sky and burning bright. On the pier are countless wooden junks, speedboats and even tiny bamboo boats bobbing in the water welcoming thousands of visitors.

Having stinted on bus for nearly four hours, I now only wish to immediately get out the water and feel the sea breeze running through my air. I am then transferred to a large and handsome junk which is worth money to me. My Halong Bay cruise starts and I’m very excited.

As carefully planning to discover new things in my life, I have well prepared for this Halong tour. As we set off the bay, with the binoculars, I can survey the glorious setting all around us. A trip to Halong is first and foremost about relaxing, so just within some first minutes every single passenger arrives on deck to sip drinks in the sunshine while basking at the brilliance of bay. I stretch out on a lie-low on the more shaded lower deck and listen to the sound of the boat chopping through the waves. As time slowly passes, I happily doze off in the salty air. Eventually I am called for a delicious Vietnamese lunch.
