Halong Bay, VN - Weekend Getaway

After a long week, mostly spent crunching Excel sheets in a hot conference room in Hanoi, VN, I thought a weekend getaway to Halong Bay before heading back home to LA was much deserved. I'd have to say, Halong Bay is definitely one of those places that really looks like (or even better than) the postcards when you visit! I haven't been on many cruises thus far, but I can guess that most probably wouldn't offer you the same sense of peacefulness that Halong does; perhaps it's the stillness of the bay and that it's surprisingly not over-populated with other junk boats. It was the perfect way to get some much needed R&R and have that "I-met-someone-interesting-on-a-solo-adventure" moment... More on that later.
