Halong Bay, Vietnam

Halong Bay, North Vietnam.  Halong Bay is classified as one of the seven wonders of the world.  It is indeed truly inspiring and a beautiful place.  However, please be aware of a few things.  First, during the winter months it can get pretty cold and humid, so come prepared!  Also, Halong Bay is about 4 hours by car from Hanoi, plan accordingly… some hotels told us it would only take 3 hours but it was really closer to 4 hours both ways, so don’t miss your flight on the way back!  I would not recommend spending a long time in Halong Bay, besides the bay there is really not much to do in town and the food is mediocre… it is also pretty dull and rundown, so don’t bother besides the bay.  Another thing, forget about the tourist pictures of red boats floating amidst the bay… there are no more red boats, they are all white (and getting old) because of a governmental decision!
