Holiday in Hanoi & HalongBay


Finally made our way up to northern Vietnam, and hence complete our visits to the "H" cities/towns/sites in Vietnam: Ho Chi Minh City, Hoi An, Hue... Now it's Hanoi and Halong Bay !! =)


It's HOT! HOT!! HOT!!! in Hanoi in late April/ early May!! :( It averages a high of 36 Deg C in the afternoon. *bleah* 


As the focus of the trip was Halong Bay, we didn't get to spend much time shopping at the Old Quarters and the DongXuan market. :( We did manage to visit some art galleries and bought some art pieces back :) The water-puppet show was pretty entertaining too.




We had our fill of the Vietnamese phở in Hanoi. :) But conclusion: Our Favorite Vietnamese beef phở has to be the Vietnamese noodle shop in Richmon, Melbourne! It wins hands down. period. 



It's a lil' bit cooler @ Halong Bay, as the cruise boat is moving so we have some cool breeze on the upper deck, else we hide in the air-conditioned cabins :P



The Halong Bay is Absolutely  GORGEOUS... very peaceful as we cruise thru' the endless limestone formations. It takes your imagination on the limestone rocks of different shapes and sizes. We found one that looks like a Merlion! :P
