My favourite cruise in Vietnam

 

Dragon Pearl, Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

In northern Vietnam 170km from Hanoi lies Ha Long Bay, one of the most scenic places I have ever visited. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this place deserves 2-3 days to enjoy the serene, calm karst landscape of countless large and small islands of different shapes and sizes rising abruptly from the sea. There are also caves, small secluded beaches and floating fishing villages not to mention the sunsets, sunrises and starry nights. With countless cruises to choose from, the Dragon Pearl is a good option as a fairly new 3-deck Chinese wooden junk with fully equipped en-suite cabins, a bar, restaurant, outside dining area and sundeck.

  1. Karst topography is a geological formation shaped by the dissolution of a layer or layers of soluble bedrock, usuallycarbonate rock such as limestone ordolomite,[1] but also in gypsum.[2] It has also been documented for weathering-resistant rocks, such as quartzite, given the right conditions.[3]

    Got it 🙂 Looks eerie, yet lovely 🙂 Thinking of you xxx
