So many islands

Even more islands!

Saying goodbye to our second boat

Single island

The day started a little rainy, and it was sad to know we were leaving Ha Long Bay, as it is quite stunning, and likely to rapidly become more developed than it already is. Truly a natural wonder of the world. Not a yacht or marina in sight, but just wait. We changed boats again (to the nicest one yet) but basically just spent the morning motoring through the islands back to Ha Long Port, and it was great. Chaotic at the port, another big lunch (avoiding the jars of snake), and back to Ha Noi. I can't get a flight out when I want, so am on an overnight 'hard' sleeper train, which is no real hardship if it is like the Chinese ones. So two more days here and then off to Hue.
