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.
Admiring a most beautiful arch in Ha Long Bay
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.

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