Sharlene so quickly… part 3: Halong Bay

From Sapa, we took the overnight train back to Hanoi where we were dropped off at the city’s center lake before sunrise… we walked around this lake watching all the people do their morning exercises… I learned that it used to be required… but now it’s more like a healthy habit. We soon got on our bus / van that took us 3-4 hours away to the majestic Halong Bay… in the running for one of the 7th wonders of the world.. this bay has 1969 limestone islands jutting out of the bay.. it’s sooooo beautiful! We visited a fishing village and we got to kayak on our own… it was gorgeous… and the restored junk boat was so air conditioned, I could’ve married it… in fact, Doan and I both had fantasies of getting married in Halong Bay with all of our friends and family…  you can see more pictures here www.sharlenedurfey.com/halong-bay
