Ha Long Bay Vietnam

Our professor lives a German motto. The early bird catches the worm what means, if you get up early you can enjoy a longer day and you can see more things. We had to get up very early again and drove to Halong Bay. But it was worth to get up and to drive three hours. Halong Bay is Located in the northeastern part of Vietnam and constitutes part of the western bank of Bac Bo Gulf, including the sea area of Ha Long City and Cam Pha Town and part of Van Don island district. It abuts Cat Ba Island in the southwest. Halong Bay has twice been recognized by UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage Area for its exceptional scenic beauty and outstanding geological and geomorphic values. We had a wonderful time on board on a very nice traditional boad were we got lunch, drinks and a lot of sun. The only thing what I didn’t like was the kind of dirty water but that didn’t hinder us to jump from the roof into the water for cooling down. We had a great day and got a nice tan and we are sure it was not the last day on this beautiful place.

We want to come back ☺
