Day #4 at Halong Bay – Hanoi, Part 1

Day #4 started out early with a nice breakfast at Holiday View Hotel.

After that the Iranians requested that we swing by a store for them to purchase some alcohol. We were at the port belong long to await our junk back to Halong Bay for the end of the tour. ๐Ÿ™

Along the way, the Iranians opened their alcohol and offered ALS some. After a drink or two, his whole face became SUPER red – causing more than a few people asking if he’s okay. It must be irritating for him.

We sailed to where we kayaked the day before to change to another boat. It was a much nicer boat as well. During that transition, we saw the water taxis again.

Much to our amusement.

Guess what we were all looking at with much interest.

Yes, the horror.

ALS got up the basket and wanted to row. He was accompanied by a very brave Duc (guide).

The basket was fast filling up with water…

And Duc decided to take over… ๐Ÿ˜›

Check out the priceless video:

After that, we were served lunch and enjoyed the slow, quiet sail through the bay again.

Lunch was VERY VERY good! The best of this whole trip. We think it’s because this junk is part of a more expensive package. Very nice!

Have a look – it is nicer than the first junk we took.

And wait! Before we say bye to Halong Bay, ALS had to be fined! For the paddle “flap” of course!

Good bye, Halong Bay!
