My trip to Ha Long Bay, Vietnam: The beauty of the bay

2년 전

DSC_0788.jpg

This was the moment we'd been waiting for: enjoying the otherworldly beauty of nature. We transferred to a rowboat to visit the Vung Vieng floating fishing village.

DSC_0681.jpg

It was a little bit chilly as we moved gently on the calm emerald water.

DSC_0682.jpg

There it was, the little fishing village right in front of us.

DSC_0703.jpg

Passing the fishing village, we continued our journey.

DSC_0710.jpg

A cave! Yup, it's just one of many caves here.

DSC_0720.jpg

The bay has thousands of limestone karsts and islets in various shapes and sizes.

DSC_0725.jpg

We took pictures, chatted about what we saw occasionally and just enjoyed being there. No electricity, no internet, and life was good. 😊

DSC_0727.jpg

We passed a unique looking ship on our way back.

We had time to relax before dinner. Speaking of dinner, do you like Vietnamese food? If not, visiting Ha Long Bay could be a challenge. I love Vietnamese food so I had a wonderful time enjoying seafood and everything else. There was a spa onboard too.

The next morning, we skipped the sunrise and Taichi class in their schedule. We were still woken by the staff to get ready for breakfast at 7 am because we had to go sightseeing with all the other passengers. After breakfast, we got on a small boat to see Luon Cave.

DSC_0748.jpg

The boat stopped in front of the entrance to Luon Cave. We waited for a small rowboat to take us through the cave. The misty mountain atmosphere woke me up.

DSC_0761.jpg

Here we were going through that tiny looking cave.

DSC_0764.jpg

It looked bigger as we got closer. What's inside?

DSC_0770.jpg

Going through the cave was a unique experience. The journey was as exciting as the destination.

DSC_0772.jpg

It was a bay surrounded by mountains. Our boat continued to move around the very calm water to have a closer look at all the living things on the rocks. There was a monkey on a cliff who greeted us as we entered the bay through the cave. Can you find him?😄

DSC_0776-2.jpg

DSC_0783.jpg

On the way out, we saw people kayaking into the cave. Would you prefer to kayak or sit comfortably as a passenger on a rowboat with others and enjoy the view?

DSC_0793.jpg

Then we got into a motorboat and headed back to the cruise ship because some passengers were departing one day before us.

DSC_0796.jpg

We moved past unforgettable scenes. At that point, I told myself I would come back again someday.

DSC_0804.jpg

Most people ended their journey here. It was just 9 am, my husband and I were the only ones who stayed for another day. So we boarded a day boat and spent the rest of our day there. Yeah! Another boat. This one was nicer with a restaurant,

DSC_0809-2.jpg

a deck and we had the entire boat to ourselves.

DSC_0815.jpg

We spent the day with a very nice crew: a captain, a tour guide, and a chef. The crew was taking us to new places, we told each other our life stories, about our families and how we got there. I told them how cold it was in New York City at the time.

We passed by a beach but it was too chilly to swim, so we just took some pictures. Say cheese...😄

DSC_0823-2.jpg

We stopped at a pearl farm and had a little tour. This girl was explaining how pearls are cultured from oysters. We were shown step by step the process of pearl farming. I even had a chance to pick an oyster with pearls inside to open. There was a jewelry store that sold pearls too.

DSC_0836.jpg

We returned to the boat to continue our journey.

DSC_0854.jpg

DSC_0857.jpg

I was hanging out on the deck and it started to rain.

DSC_0871.jpg

Then it was time for lunch. There was more food than we could eat. Seven courses with fruits for dessert. We didn't forget to order some wine too.

Ha Long 2015-2.jpg

After lunch, we took a nap on the day boat until it was time to return to the cruise ship.

To be continued...

Thanks so much for your time, my friend.
Have a great day!

Love,
@dewdrop

Chào Ngọc! 😉 Rất vui được gặp bạn ở đây. Mình lớn lên ở Việt Nam mà. Hehe. Cám ơn Ngọc khen về bài viết nhé. 😊

Dang... Makes me wanna go there. I have never been to a tropical place on earth actually. Should I go?

·

Haha. That's great! I don't know. 😄

·
·

I'll think about it! =D

Hey dewdrop,

Wow, this place looks amazing and from your post it looks like you had fun there. I will put it on my bucket list and will try to visit it when I come to Vietnam as now I have a friend their too. I liked the way you said you had no electricity and internet so you just enjoyed the moment that is very important and we have started to leave it behind.

·

Hey! Thanks so much for your very nice comment. So happy you put it on your bucket list. Thanks again! 😊

·
·

My pleasure. I am always looking for interesting things which I could put on my list and you gave me one so technically I should be saying thanks to you.
I am planning to share my bucket list with steemit community :p

·
·
·

Oh, that sounds great! 😊

Oh, I also really like to swim on a boat.

·

How do you do that? You need a big one with a swimming pool then. 😊

The water looks really nice. Seems a good place for a swim and boat ride. Awesome!

·

Thanks, Gvincent! Yes, you're right! I think summer time is better for swimming.

Vietnam a nice place to Vist

·

It's very nice of you to say so. 😊

My wife and I almost traveled to Vietnam this year, but we've postponed it until next year. Your post is so beautiful, it is making me question our decision to postpone for a year. ;-)

·

Hahaha! That means you like the post. Thanks, Gikitiki!

·
·

Yes, it was a fabulous post.

nó là đẹp

·
·
·

Aww... Thanks! Canada is beautiful too. 😊

Excellent Vietnam Travel. Good Experience and nice place

100% like and resteem

·

Thanks so much, Stmit! This one is my favorite too.😉

What a beautiful place! Thank You for sharing this pictures of Ha Long Bay, Vietnam! How long was your trip???

·

Thanks for enjoying the pictures. We stayed on the boat for 3 days but the whole trip was 6 days. 😊

·
·

My favorite photos were the rowboat to visit the Vung Vieng floating fishing village and monkey on a cliff who greeted us as we entered the bay through the cave (up top)! Thank You for sharing these with Steemit. Six Days is a perfect trip! Are you planning on going again in the near future???

·
·
·

Aww... thank you so much, David! Nah, not the near future. 😀

This is mesmerising. I just couldn't take my eyes off from the mountains. They actually added beauty to the water.
Lovely pictures @dewdrop.

·

Aww...😍 Thanks so much, my friend!

This is heaven! Damn beautiful, I wish I could make it with my family one day similar to what you guys did; no phones at all. Food could be an issue as I am a strict veggie. Also the monkey was easy to find as the camera focus was on the monkey and that's why he is in the center of the pic :D.
Truly awesome pics

·

Hey! Thanks! There's plenty of fruits and veggies. If you let them know, they'd go out of their way to comfort you. 😉 The monkey was the husband favorite part of the whole trip. Haha
Thanks again, my friends. Have a good night! 😉

Nice story, when I was there our canoe flipped over because it was leaking haha. Glad that didn't happen to you.

·

Omg! That's so bad. So sorry about that. Now you couldn't forget it. Haha
Thanks! 😊

Very nice shots you have there, really like the colors. Almost looks tropical, like Hawaii or Cancun. Quite a unique experience on the boat I'm sure!

·

Thanks so much, Glenn! It was a very nice break from the winter here. I guess it's nicer in the summer with blue sky and you can go swimming too. 😉

Nice post,lf l have much time l wiil go soon @dewdrop l will do some interesting moment

·

Thanks, Rizwan! That would be great! 😊

Lovely photos and lovely colours of the sea, sky and mountains! What a fantastic holiday! It’s like a fairy land or fantasy land in a film!
The cave and emerald water are just impressive, that monkey is quite big!

Cheers.

·

Hey! It's like James Bond island in Phu Ket right? 😉. Thanks for enjoying the pics, my friend. Have a good night!

WOW! Look at that beautiful water and the views!!! It is just stunning really!

·

_MG_1425.jpg

P.S: Are you still in Vietnam? If you are in Hanoi, let hang out for beer ^^!

·

Hey! Thanks! Your photos are amazing! I wish I'm in VN now for Tet holidays but no, I'm not. I'll save your beer for the next time. 😉
Nice to meet you here. We can chat in Tiếng Việt too if you want. 😉

Really? Bạn có thể nói tiếng Việt? Hihi
Tuyệt vời! Nếu có dịp quay lại Vietnam thì hãy liên lạc với tôi nhé! Rất hân hạnh :)

Uh, nếu có dịp mình sẽ liên lạc với bạn. 😊

Wow. This is absolutely breathtaking.
Beautiful Vietnam.
I love the water and I love how you spend the whole day on the water and even had lunch on water.
Trip of a lifetime.

Hey! Thanks so much, Josefine! 😍 Hope you're doing well at school. 😊

Beautiful place...Hope oneday i can travel there...Just <3 your blog..

Thanks so much, Mrlazy! 😊

What an excellent post about a unique and wonderful place.

And even though it was cool and apparently cloudy, your photos are excellent, capturing the beauty of the bay and it's various features.

Thanks so much, Shavishtha! 😉

Boat all to yourselves?? Wow! But this place is beautiful, I long to go there. You guys aren't up by 7AM? What!?!?! When i'm on vacation, i'm up before the sun comes out. Well, that's because I love chasing sunrises... Lovely @dewdrop as always.
*edit
You made me miss Vietnam! I can't travel for another 7 months!!!

·

Hey! I used to chase sunrise just like you before having the baby. After he was born, our world turned upside down. We sleep whenever we could. Yeah, I miss VN too. Travelling with a baby is a challenge. My son cried a lot on the plane every time when he was a baby. You'd feel bad for people around you.
Thanks, my friend. You and my husband have the same name you know. 😉

·
·

upside down inside out... babies are soooo demanding aren't they!!!?? Miss travelling already. I hope when we travel with her she would be good.. like not cry.. but I know that aint happening.. eheh

Your hubby's name is Foovler?
*EDIT
Smiley Face

·
·
·

Yup! Are you used to changing diapers yet? Thousands more to come, papa. Nope, the same real name with you. (Yen told me your name) 😄.

·
·
·
·

OooOhh cheekygirl! eheheh She told you my full name, not just Chris? It's Christian by the way. Nice to meet you Dewy.

And yes, i'm used to changing diapers now. Working on cutting my change time to 30 seconds. i'm currently at 2 minutes..

·
·
·
·
·

Hehe. She told me just Chris. Nice to meet you Christian. 😄 Soon you'll do it with your eyes closed. 😄

That must be unforgettable experience, extremely beautiful pictures but I believe this is how it is in reality, the nature in its whole beauty, I love the caves and the feeling of passing under them, from distance I thought that there were bats or is it just some rocky, sharp edges of stones. The fisher village looks like in a cartoon, so neat and tiny, again from distance. I bet you really enjoyed your time.

·

Hey, Stef! Thanks! You're right! It was a very nice experience and I enjoyed it. The bats sound scary. Haha. I bet you'd sketch a lot of pictures. 😉

Beautiful photography. For some reason, this reminds me a little of the floating islands in the Avatar movie. Thanks for sharing!

·

Thanks, Seraphinacolette! Aww... that is a very nice reminder. 😍 I love that movie.

  ·  2년 전

This place is beautiful, why not invite me to see this very beautiful location, a very beautiful travel. friend

·

Hey! Thanks, Ades! Haha, you're closer to it than me now, my friend. 😀

Great post, I visited Vietnam a couple years back and was not able to visit that part of vietnam, I just stayed near the south but heard many people say it is a great place to visit, I have to go back there one day

·

Thanks! I was from the south and that was my first time visiting the north 😃. Yeah, good idea! It takes some efforts to get there but worth it. 😉

Very nice photography. Very beautiful natural scene. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

Wow Vietnam has such a nice place! 😍 did they let you take the pearl from the oyster you pick?

·

Hi, Vaelriey! No, they didn't. Hahaha

·
·

Aaaww too bad 😅
It would be nice to bring back one. I was looking through the photos again and cant help but to wish I’m there right now 😂

Thanks so much for reading, Yasmine! So happy I inspired you. 😊 Bali is so beautiful! 😉

wow, these pictures are great! I was thinking of going to Vietnam at the end of the year, and now I can see that we definitely should! How did you find such an amazing place? And have you tried a Vietnamese coffee? I did once in Malaysia and it was delicious! :)

·

Hi Yulia! Thanks! I used to live in Vietnam for many years so yeah, I love Vietnamese coffee. I like to add condense milk and ice into the one you had. 😉

Amazing shots and an amazing experience. When I looked at the pictures I totally fell in love with this place... It really looks beautiful and everybody would love to spend a vacation here.

We really appreciate that you share this pictures with us who haven't had the opportunity to go there but hope to go someday to enjoy its beauty.

Thank you for sharing! Everything looks great.

when's your next time back>??? the colors are beautiful

·

Mmm... I don't know! before I die maybe. Hahaha. How about you?
Thanks! 😉

·
·

prob during the year sometime. I think it's fun to go once a year to change the scenery a bit. haha. I also want to see more of europe as well. I really love Amsterdam.
Once we live in the city though, it's hard to leave often!

·
·
·

Yeah! Sounds exciting! You're young, handsome and could do it. Why not, right? Haha. Yeah, we're so comfy with where we are and traveling messes things up a bit. That's why we don't do it so often.

·
·
·
·

So nice! I need to start working on my look again. Ever since graduation, I have been letting myself go a bit trying to save money for the future.

·
·
·
·
·

Yup! Today is the youngest day of the rest of our life. I'm 30 something and start saying "when I was young" already. Haha

I‘ve never been to Vietnam but if I go to Vietnam I will go there, it’s looks great!!
Doesn‘t used a James Bond movie this scenery?

·

Thanks, Theengineer! I think they made James Bond in Thailand. Kong: Skull Island 2017 filmed here. 😉

Beautiful place like a paradise...looks you really had a great time. Thanks for sharing...

·

Thanks for enjoying, Sitiaishah! 😊

I like the 3rd image from the bottom -- showing those Large Rocks sticking out . Think that all these images are superlative !

When I noticed the very 1st pic, the one of the Kayaker going inside of the cave ... my jaw dropped (as I could tell this wd be a Cool pictorial ).

Your manner of telling the story, w/ Text in between the images, is quite nice ♦♦ Good formatting.

The 3rd image is pretty -- with its cool emerald color !!

Thanks for sharing yr #TRAVEL experience.

Hi, Jan! Very nice to meet you! Thanks so much for taking the time to write a very nice comment. 😊 I'm so happy you like the pictures. I took so many of them. 😄 Thanks again for enjoying the post, Jan. Yay! 😄

·
·

Yes indeed. ☻

Lovely, resteemed & upvote. @dewdrop travel blog queen. Reminds me of La Jolla San Diego caves...but this is even more beautiful.

·

Aww...😍 your compliment will keep me smiling all night tonight. 😄 Thanks so much, Alphasteem! It would be great if you show us those caves. 😉

·
·

almost at 1000... whale status!!!

·
·
·

Nah, because I posted almost 2000 posts. There are only 35 whales on steemit with millions in their wallets and I'm not one of them. Haha

·
·
·
·

Yeah, but I learned a lot from you and you upvoted one of my first posts and u continue to do it too so I really appreciate it and thank you! So your a whale in my book. Hopefully I can return you with better upvotes...I'll just have to invest some finances in steem to grow...I said I would give it at least a month without investing and so far its been good i'm quite happy with the results and glad I came by your posts first.

·
·
·
·
·

Aww.... You're very welcome! Yeah, I don't like to see 0 under a good post from new users. My power is just tiny, you'll get a lot more people voting for you. (I bought votes from day 1 actually 😅) Glad you're happy with the results and thanks for being so nice to me too. 😊

Man I miss Vietnam. We loved Halong Bay but Sapa was probably our favorite.
We went thru that exact same cave / tunnel. Thanks for bringing back the memories of our 6 day adventure across Vietnam!

·

Aww... That's awesome you've been to Sapa. Writing this bringing back our memories too. Thanks for enjoying, Qberry! 😉

so beautiful and untouched nature ...
i really want to go to asia (never been), but don't even know where to start, it is so far away which means expensive heh

·

Thanks, Sleepdeeper! The flight would be long and discomfort. So maybe flying to somewhere you like and closer to home?

·
·

Well, I have seen a lot of Europe, need to go somewhere more exciting and far away :)
Which leaves the Americas, Africa, the big Russia or Asia which looks most exciting :)

·
·
·

Yeah! You'll see a lot of tiny people in Asia. Haha

Been there too,,,, few months back,,, but unfortunately, the weather was not good.... cloudy here and there... amazing post!

·

Hey! Thanks! We had a storm on our way back too...

·
·

cloudy weather is really bad to take photos... :(

Very nice post & Very beautiful pictures by a very beautiful Vietnamese lady!
I've been to Vietnam last year, but not to the famous Halong bay yet. Will go there some day.
Thanks for sharing!

·

Aww, thanks so much for your compliments! That would be great! Thanks for enjoying! 😊

Dewdrop, this looks epic! I've always wanted to visit Vietnam to go visit the Ban Gioc Waterfall, and now I'll have to add Ha Long Bay to my list. Great pictures!

·

Aww... That's great! Thanks, Jumpmaster! 😊

@dewdrop wow wonderful place and nice photography happy enjoy

Thanks so much, Steem2000! 😉

Those were some incredible pictures, the way you told the story made me feel I was there as if reading a book. The colour of the water stands out to me, and I can feel a sense of calm coming from every picture. You took amazing photographs! Following you now.

·

Thanks for enjoying, Siagam! 😊

Great post 😁
I recently did 6 weeks in northern Vietnam with my wife and 2 small children
Ha Long bay, although beautiful was our least favourite part of the trip, possibly due to my son being bitten by a monkey on monkey island, requiring immediate medical attention in Hanoi, but getting stuck on Catba island for two days in a typhoon . We made it out in time to get the treatment, so all's well that ends well, but it scared the bejeezus out of us
P1020401.JPG
Ninh Binh, on the other hand, was outstanding
IMG_1985.JPG

·

Hi! Thanks!
Omg! That sounds like my worst nightmare. Sorry you guys had to go through that. Glad he's ok.
We were stuck in Hai Phong on the way back because of the storm too. Haven't been to Ninh Binh yet, maybe someday. 😊

·
·

It was pretty intense, but we got through and learnt a lot in the process.
I absolutely loved Vietnam overall, such a diverse and beautiful place

·
·

@dewrop Your fantastic post has inspired me to bring one of my Vietnam travel blogs into Steemit. You can find it here if you're at all interested. Either way, thanks for the inspiration
I'll be writing more about our adventures there in the near future, would love it if you'd stop by to check them out @goldiemr

It is beautiful place and beautiful post, dewdrop :)

·

Thanks so much, Eva! 😉

That is a pretty fancy boat, I really love the views I could spend months just taking photos.

·

Hey! You asked about it before. You'd make amazing pictures. 😉

·
·

Glad you remembered, I knew it would be a hit here on steemit. Glad its doing so nicely for you, you deserve it for sticking with it!

·
·
·

Aww... You're so nice to me. Thanks so much, my friend!

Vietnam is one of my favorite country to go to in Asia! Thanks for sharing your experience with us. Really good photos!

·

That's great! Thanks so much, Jackson! 😊

WOW! This places looks absolutely incredible. Thank you for sharing so many beautiful photos of your experience! Vietnam is top 10 for me on my list of places to visit so I hope to get there someday soon. Happy travels! ~Amanda

·

Hi, Amanda! Nice to meet you! So happy you like the pictures. That would be great! Thanks! 😊

Wouuuuuu just mind blowing photos.... I am loving it. <3 Thanks for the nice post.

·

Thanks for enjoying, Inkyy! 😊

Amazing photos! This is very good post and you got the rewards you rightly earned with your talents and skills!

Happy March to you! It's almost spring!
How is the weather?
Keep warm and healthy!

Cheers.

·

Hi there! How are you?
Thanks for visiting, my friend. It's always a pleasure to read your comment. 😍 You know it's great that more people read, vote and comment on my post now but the reward number is because of me buying votes. Haha
Happy March to you too! I'm so ready for spring! Can't wait to take flower pictures again.
The weather must be nice in Thailand now. It's getting warm here but still snowing today.
I'm not sick anymore but getting fat. Haha!
Have a good night! Cheers.

·
·

Very well, thank you.
Dear gentle Dewdrop! Your answer was very funny! I was laughing like crazy. Hahaha. You bought votes as well! I hope it was a good investment!
It’s suddenly turned very hot and humid here. February was very nice and cool for a change.
Yes, I have the same problem. Too much sitting in front of the computer and less exercises!
It’s time to go the swimming pool if I could get into my old suit!
Let be more healthy! Move about and dance!!😇

Cheers🍷🌷😍

·
·
·

Buying votes is not a very profitable game but my posts get more views and it's kind of addicted. 😄
What if you couldn't get into your old suit? Buying bigger ones is tough on the psychology. 😄 I have a gym membership which I never use. Why going to the gym and waste energy while I could use that time to enjoy tea and cake? Haha.
Dancing sounds fun! Have a good day, my friend!
Cheers!

·
·
·
·

Hahaha! The old swim suit got expired! The elastic band had gone dead! That just shows how long I haven't been swimming! I must make a real effort to go swimming before I forgot how to swim! Must buy a new swim suit!!

I do agree with you about buying votes! It's the satisfaction of seeing the numbers of views!
I think you should have some refund for your membership or some extension as you haven't really use the gym that often. But after your tea and cake sessions, you will have gained lots of energy to be wasted at the gym! if I were there I would accompany you to the gym, I would wait outside with my tea and cake.

It would be nice if you had a buddy with whom to go the gym. If I had swimming buddy, I would be in much better shape in two months. I have been trying to do some stretching everyday for five to ten minutes; must try yoga one day!

Hope that spring is coming very soon so that we'll see your new posts and beautiful photos again. It's a shame that there are no in door exhibitions for you to visit and take your photos!

Keep fit and jolly.
Cheers.

Hahaha! You're so funny! It's hard to lose weight because I hate losing. Hahaha. Yeah! We make all kinds of excuses, do we? :D There are many indoor exhibitions actually, but I'm fat and lazy to go now. Hahaha. I'm telling you so if you see my new picture, you will know I'm not pregnant. Hahaha
I'm waiting to see you in your new bikini. Haha (just kidding)
Love you!
Cheers.

You are right I made reasonable excuses everyday! Today is 'I am too late, the swimming pool is already close!'
I think a wet suit will be more suitable for me! I don't want to frighten other people away from the swimming pool!
Hahaha! You are the funny one! I was thinking about that too, you might have another baby which is a very good idea. I am very confident that you can bring up very nice and happy children, and you'll have a very warm family atmosphere for years.

I am procrastinating about several things which have to be done presto! i wish I had a thirty-hours day!

Missing you new posts!
Wishing you lots of drive to take more photos! :)
Cheers.

Awesome! This looks like Palawan, Philippines. You might want to check out those photos and videos about the place. You have captured nature very clean and clear. What camera and settings did you use for your pictures here? Love it! Thank you for sharing!

·

Thanks! Yeah, I saw amazing Palawan pictures before. It was my phone actually. 😊 Original pictures were a little bit darker, I used Lightroom to brighten them up. Thanks, Cheya! 😊
