When describing how beautiful Halong Bay was to my daughter, Nina, she said “Mom, you say that about everywhere you go in Vietnam!”. I can’t help it…it is true. Each destination seems to be more breathtaking than the one before.
Made the trip with my new travel buddy, Laura. She was in Hanoi on business and I caught up with her on her last day. The next morning we made the three and a half hour drive to Halong Bay. We boarded the Paradise Luxury junk boat and began our three day tour. Along the route, we stopped to visit floating villages, islands, caves and swimming locales. It didn’t matter if it was morning, evening, sunny or rainy, the view was always spectacular. And it was so special meeting locals and fellow travelers. But, none more so than the Starlin family from New Orleans. I spotted Drew’s (GOOD name!) Saints’ shirt and knew I had to make their acquaintance!
I hope you find my Halong Bay film entertaining. I know I enjoyed making it just for you!
This week, Laura and I are traveling to Nha Trang, said to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam. I am running out of superlatives to describe the beauty of Vietnam. Saigon Love to all, Lisa
