Halong Bay, Vietnam

20121121-225042.jpg

A view from the top of Ti-Top island. We hiked 400 steps to the top to take this pic of the the many Junk Boats. This area is a huge travel destination in Vietnam as there are 1000s of Karst limestone formations “growing” out of the bay. It was a four hour drive east of Hanoi to get there and well worth it. We had a cabin on the Marguerite Garden junk boat with people from Germany and Australia. We are now in Hue after taking a 12 hour night train south. Tomorrow we head to Hoi An then fly to Dalat for a change of pace. Fun fact: there are about 7 million people in Hanoi and about 4 million motorbikes.
