2 nights in Halong Bay aboard a junk cruise

We spend 2 nights aboard this tiny ship called Calypso, the first night they were about 15 people on board and the last night we were 10.

It was like having our own private boat!

Our first afternoon on board we went for A bamboo boat excursion, where we

got to see floating villages of fisherman, living there. The water was calm and Of an emerald green.

Toasting our first night with Proseco. The food was amazing. We ate way too much, drank a bit- right!! didn’t move enough And races up and the down the four flights of stairs to get our steps in.

While practicing early morning tai chi on the other.

kayaking to caves

inside the cave with way too many tourists!

April 1st, Easter morning contemplating the pillars jetting out of the sea and enjoying the morning light.

All In all, it was an earned and calming interlude sandwiched between our homestay trekking in Sapa and the next caving adventure awaiting us.

  2. Celia, those pictures are amazing, that “Junk” reminds me of the Carnival Cruise ship we took in Europe, only smaller, of course, did they have onboard entertainment and bingo?
