Halong Bay

Day 03 (part 2)

overcast

Got our keys and put our luggage into respective rooms. Take a look at my room!

There is no electricity in the room before 5 p.m. I don't know if that is the same for all the boats or just this one. Anyway, I am not spending money to sleep through the day!

Lunch is served at around 1 p.m. The food is decent, both in quality and quantity. Drinks are not included in the package, so if you get any drinks from the boat you will have to pay. USD2 for a can of beer, around double the usual price.

Just hanged around the deck after lunch. Some pictures of misty Halong Bay...

We reached the "Surprising Caves" at 2 p.m.+. The cave was pretty nice, nothing TOO surprising and the air was really cool! As if someone switched on the air-con in the cave. Come in and take a look!

We left the cave less than an hour later, and moved on to kayaking. Not really a BIG deal and was doing it simply because it was included. Anyway it started drizzling on and off while we were kayaking so we just did a short one.

The evening was spent lying around the deck doing nothing. With such weather, I guess there will be no stars tonight. What a disappointment!

Dinner is served at 7 p.m., food is still pretty good, with more seafood compared to lunch. The sky continue to be overcast, and even the moon is nowhere to be seen, not to mention the stars. Sigh......
