We have left the lovely country of Lao behind and we're moving on to Vietnam. The calm of Lao has been replaced by the frantic hustle and bustle of Ha Noi. With it's 8 million people and 36 million scooters it is a nightmare crossing the street.
Luckily we decided to stop off on Ha Long Bay for a short cruise. Wow, what a difference. Quiet, peaceful and most of all the view of a lifetime.
The best part of the cruise had to be the Surprising Cave. It was huge. Nestled in one of the islands it blew us away with it's size and beauty.
Back to Ha Noi for a night and now we're off to Hue on the overnight train.
