Don't mind the Post Office

Don't worry about the auspicious Post Office sign in the background. This old temple out in the lake is the main attraction here. No swimming or even thinking about swimming in this lake.

Hoa Kiem Lake HaNoi

Pretty view of Hoa Kiem Lake, lake of the Returning Sword. Steeped in Vietnamese folk history and culture. Loads of activity around this spot day and night.

Beautiful just beautiful

Looking down on the junks from the cave platform. This is one of the prettiest shots you get from a high vantage point.

Crazy Aussies

Here the Aussie's on our trip jump in to cool off. The local 7-11 or mini mart comes to you here on the water. Beer, smokes, soda or just about anything you want or need is available.

One of the passages thru the bay

Aboard the Christine as we make our way towards the caves located on one of the big islands in HaLong Bay.

Scenic View of HaLong Bay

Just a beautiful view in HaLong Bay VietNam. Very picturesque. The two days I spent aboard were spectacular.
