Contrary to popular (and in my case, uninformed) belief, it does get cold in Vietnam. Particularly in the Northern part of the country where Halong Bay is located.
My friends and I took a trip there in the beginning of April, which was just about the end of winter. Having not brought the proper attire for the trip, needless to say, we froze. But even while frozen it was hard not to appreciate the beauty that put Halong Bay on the map as one of nature’s natural wonders of the world. It was breathtaking.
Escape to Halong Bay in the next few posts.
