After a long journey from Sapa to Hanoi on the sleeper and then from Hanoi to Halong Bay we were finally on our incredible boat – the Indochina Sails.
The scenery was stunning and it didn’t take us long to relax on deck!
After lunch we headed off in kayaks – something I was a little worried about but completely blew me away- it has to be up there with my all time favourite things. The bay we were in was completely deserted bar a few floating fishing villages and we paddled past silently taking our surroundings in.
Back on deck, exhausted and hungry we watched as a chef taught us how to make Vietnamese spring rolls- essentially a bit like a Mexican burrito but smaller- and then we gobbled them up!
