This is the first of many posts that I will be doing about our recent trip to Vietnam and Hong Kong.  My wife Camilla and I went to Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An, and then Hong Kong on a great trip that just finished.

These are photos of the wondrous Halong Bay.  The Bay has approximately 2,000 small, mostly uninhabited limestone islands with vegetation.  The only way to see it is to take a one night boat cruise on a “Junk”.  Our boat was called The Violet and was designed in the famous IndoChina style of the 1930’s. 

We had a great time, looking out at the sea, meeting new friends, visiting a secluded private beach, and walking through a cave. 

Here are a few of the photos from our Halong Bay excursion.  Definitely worth the 4 hour drive from Hanoi!
