4/7/2014 – Halong Bay
Took the bus to Halong Bay, stopping at a pottery that does everything by hand still, including hand fired kilns. Got to do some hand painting, but didn’t get to keep it. Boarded the boat and had a fine dining experience, with many courses. The scenery is also quite good, at this point, about the best we’ve seen. Not hard given it’s mostly been cities. Stopped at a cave which has been over touristed, before heading to Cat Ba island which is neon city when you arrive. Shame really, but anyway. Saw hospital cave, a hospital built underground during the war to be safe from the enemy. Just cement buildings inside the cave left now. Saw some huge spiders. Took a little tour on an electric cart of the city part, the island is not all bad and much bigger than you think. Our main bus was meant to meet us on the island, but didn’t make it, so quite a few people were missing their clothes that they’d left on the bus.
