Good Morning Vietnam! After the wonderful time in Laos we headed East to Vietnam. The capitol Hanoi was the starting point for our trip to the famous Halong Bay, situated only three hours bus ride away. We spent three days exploring this World Heritage Site by boat. We enjoyed the mystic atmosphere created by the famous rock formations in combination with quite foggy weather.

Besides kayaking in the bay we did some trekking as well. It was quite cold and rainy which made the trekking through Cat Ba National Park a really exciting adventure. Some people we ran across during our ascent to the top of the hill where covered all over in mud. After crawling, climbing and getting ourselves dirty as well we finally reached the top. In the end the view over the forest covered hills was definitely worth the effort and left an everlasting impression.
