Halong Bay & Cat Ba Island Vietnam

Halong Bay

     We enjoyed Halong Bay by opting for a $15 all  inclusive boat ride that did not disappoint. The day involved kayaking for about an hour, optional rock-climbing on Monkey Island and jumping off the boat into Halong Bay. Lunch was provided on the boat and had vegetarian options in the form of tapas for the whole table. The boat holds about 30 people and you can buy beer onboard.

Cat Ba Island

Like a scene out of Jurassic Park. We took the scooter around the island to check out  the different backdrops for a T-Rex singing the movie’s theme song the entire time.

Hospital Cave

During the Vietnam War this cave in the side of a mountain on the island was used as a hospital. Invisible to the enemy, the Hospital Cave had numerous rooms, a cinema and even a swimming pool.
