Halong Bay Cruise: Day 1

Pinterest

3 days and 2 nights in Halong Bay – let the amazing cruise begin! As soon as we got on the boat, they gave us cocktails and served up a beautiful lunch! The food was to die for every day which made me so happy – we love Vietnamese food!

We were in heaven – the scenery around us was just breathtaking!

In the afternoon, they anchored the boat and took us out sea kayaking to a private beach which was a blast! We felt like we were living in a dream – it was awesome!

That night, we had a cooking class and they taught us how to make spring rolls! They also gave us some Vietnamese liquor that they had left in a coconut for 1 – 2 months. It was incredible!

At the very end of the night, we tried our hand at squid fishing. I don’t think any squid were interested in what we were offering so we gave it our best try but unfortunately did not snag any.

We were anchored in a quiet little area for the night…this was a neat sight to have from our balcony as our first day ended.

    How beautiful. I did not stay overnight, but I was able to get a kayak trip in! It was so much fun. Unfortunately we forgot our camera in the boat, so we’ll just have to savor the memories! :)

      Hi Quyen! I’m glad you got to kayak, too! I’m sure those memories will last forever…we couldn’t get enough of Halong Bay…still one post coming with the fishing village and Surprise cave for next week. Then, sadly, my gushing of Halong Bay will be complete. Enjoy your day!
