Rano sme vyrazili spat do pristavu. Akurat bol odliv a tak sme mali moznost vidiet mangrovniky a ich odkryte korene. V tento den sa nad vodou vznasal opar, ale neprsalo a teplo bolo stale rovnake. Potom sme cakali na bus, ktory nas odviezol do restauracie, kde sme mali obed. Po obede sme cakali na bus, ktory nas odviezol spat do Hanoia. Po prichode do Hanoia sme cakali na dalsi bus, ktory nas viezol do Ninh Binh. Povodne sme mali do Ninh Bing dorazit okolo 8, nakoniec to bolo o 10.30. Ale to je tu normalne, vsetci s tym tak nejak rataju.... read more

Budik sme si nastavili na 6.30, ako odprucany cas na pozorovanie vychodu slnka. Akcne sme vstali, slnko uz bolo samozrejme davno hore a tak sme spali dalej. Po ranajkach sme vyrazili k ostrovu Cat Ba. Tento ostrov je naozaj velky, su tu cesty, chodia tu autobusy. Cestou sme sa zastavili v narodnom parku Cat Ba, kde sme vystupili na najvyssi kopec ostrova. Vystup nam dal poriadne zabrat. Nie tak kvoli dlzke, ako vdaka prisernemu teplu a dusnu. So saunou sa to porovnavat neda, toto bolo ovela horsie. Kym sme sa vratili k autobusu, tak vsetko nase oblecenie bolo uplne mokre. Popoludnie sme mali len pre seba a tak sme sa vybrali najst nejaku plaz. Chlapci skocili hned do prvej zatoky, ku ktorej sme prisli. V zatoke boli malinke lodky, na ktorych zili ludia a voda podla ... read more

Vlak dorazil do Hanoi okolo 4.30. Hned sa na nas vrhli taxikary, takze najst taxi nebol najmensi problem. Sofer nas zaviezol do nejakej tmavej ulicky a tvrdil ze je to nas hotel. Samozrejme ze nebol. Nakoniec nas odviezol kam sme chceli a napriek tomu, ze sme sa uz pri nastupe dohodli na cene, zacal vyjednavat. Nastastie /skusenosti/ sme si veci nedali do kufra ale mali ich so sebou v aute. Zaplatili sme na com sme sa dohodli a odisli. Chvilu sme cakali a uz pre nas prisiel autobus do Halong Bay. V meste Halong Bay sme prestupili na lod s nazvom Phuong Dong 06, ktora nas mala zobrat na plavbu po zalive Halong Bay. Tento zaliv je v UNESCO a je znamy svojou uzasnou sceneriou. V zalive je okolo 2000 z mora vystupujucich kamennych ostrovcekov porastenych ... read more

On to the boat then back to the bay. Feeling abit drowzy today but soilder on!! once we got off the boat we left one tour gide (gangsta magic tricks nd everything) and met another who would take us to the bus station. we ate at quite a buzzing place for lunch which was good and the bus trip back last ages. Din't manage any sleep really but got to know people better and then once w got off the bus we traveled (walked) down what I can only describe as a dual carrigway / motorway (blooming scary) we left the spanish girls atthe stop and then got on our overnight bus (beds were ok but not built for westerners) the whole day was taken up by travelling the drive to Hue was rough and slow ... read more

The title of the blog may seem a little toungue in cheek however after travelling north through Vietnam every person I met who had been to Halong Bay commented on the level of pollution and dirt and not a lot else really. Im not saying it is the cleanest environment on the earth it is however the largest tourist attraction in Vietnam and when you consider that the majority of junk boats carry between fifteen and thirty passengers the level of pollution per capita increases somewhat. So a little pollution is to be expected, I understand that due to it being a natural attraction the average tourist expects unspoilt landscapes and views, the reality is that this is very uncommon to find. When i arrived in Hanoi i hadn't as yet booked a trip to Halong ... read more

Vstavat sa nam velmi nechcelo, ale museli sme. O 10 sme mali stretavku s Misou, pri jazere Hoam Kiem. Nase cakanie hned vyuzila skupinka studentov, ktori si sem chodia precvicovat aglictinu na turistoch. Hodiny anglictiny su drahe a toto je pre nich vyborna prilezitost. Pre nas to zas bola prilezitost povypytovat sa na veci, ktore zaujimali nas. Pri jazere Hoam Kiem sme hned navstivili nas prvy chram Ngoc Son. Odtial sme sa vybrali do byvaleho vazenia Hoa Lo, nazyvaneho tiez Hanoi Hilton. Velmi prijemne prostredie to nebolo. Kusok odtial na nachadza pagoda Quan Su, budhisticky chram. Atmosfera tam bola velmi prijemna, nikto si nas velmi nevsimal, mohli sme sa volne prechadzat ako sme chceli a pozorovat ludi pri ich beznom zivote. Zvysok dna sme sa rozhodli stravit prechadzanim po ulickach stareho mesta. Typicka ulica vyzera takto: ... read more

8am waking up was difficult although no Hangover (Yes victory is so sweet!) the breakfast was very good also. Although afterwards we had to say bye to some of the people we had met (the americans victor etc) which was disspointing as many more beers were waiting o be drunk by us all and Bobby certainly could have helped! So off we went to a Oyster farm floating village (very intresting) and then to Monkey Island were at the top of a mini mountain we possibly had the best view ever to pee from (yes im mentioning this who dosn't want to pee with a cracking view!) The monekys were cool they played about and don some diving then we got back on the boat to head for Capa Island. Detouring to the other side of ... read more

Rano sme este stale sedeli v druhom lietadle. Do Soulu sme doleteli okolo 3 poobede miestneho casu a pred nami bolo par dalsich hodin cakania na dalsi spoj. Nejaky cas sme stravili vytvaranim obrazkov pomocou predtlaceneho vzoru a handrovej gulicky. Po letisku sa tiez prechadzal sprievod tradicne oblecenych ludi, dovod nam vsak unikol. Pred nami boli posledne 4 hodiny letu a k tomu krasny sumrak, do ktoreho sme leteli. Do Hanoia sme prileteli uz v noci, okolo 10. Pasova kontrola prebehla bez problemov. Tu sme sa dali do reci s Misou, ktora sa rozhodla cestovat sama. Mala dopredu objednane vyzdvihnutie z hotela a tak nam ponukla, ze sa mozeme zviest s nou. Za toto sme boli velmi radi, troska sme sa totiz obavali ako to bude. Taxikari tu vraj kvoli proviziam casto vozia ludi do inych ... read more

7am feeling amazinlgy sleepy but must catch the bus! So after dragging our backsides down stairs after the worst sleep of the trip we go and wait for the bus by Lee's travel agency. When the bus arrives we jump on and are suprised its a transit! good times at least its not as dodgey as some of the things we have seen. 3 and 1/2 hours on the bus to the harbour we pick up others for a total of 16 people the tour guide has brought along a stool to dsit on by the door (genius!) So after falling asllep most of the way and acting like one ofthem nodding dogs you get in the car we arrive, Say hello to a few of the people we will be travelling with and get on ... read more

Checked out the hostel today probbably one of the best sleeps I've had on the trip the aircon was amazing. Breakfast though was bread and jam (Wishing I had rought the OXO and monster munch!) wandered on down to the hostel for tonight and met the girls. One of them however had her card blocked and hd to stay behind which was a bit of shame but hopefully she sorted it all out and had a god day. We checked in and looked into going to Ha long bay. The wander around the cvity was good fun you name we probbably saw it. Mausuliums houses on stilts pagodas (i will fill in more when I get the map out) We had ice cream oo for 10K dong this is like 30p amazing. ate at a resturant ... read more
