Our cruise ship, the Treasure Junk, held less than 50 passengers. When we went there were less than 20 guests on board.
There are 2,000 of these geological formations, called karsts, in the bay.
There are 600 of these tour boats in the bay. 300 are day trippers, and 300 are overnighters.
There were kayak trips to explore.
Swimming for the adventurous (a bit chilly).
Fine dining. Multiple courses at each meal. Here was a starter soup course.
We visited a local fishing village.
Where they grow pearls.
Inserting the “seed” for the pearl
The finished product
We were paddled around by a local fisherman (that’s a woven bamboo boat).
We returned to a bustling harbor.
And we met new friends from around the world! Friends from Argentina
We even saw a boat made of concrete!
We have been so impressed with Viet Nam. The people, food, and country are AMAZING! We
can recommend it without hesitation.
