A bit of R&R

We spent a very relaxing weekend on a boat in Ha Long bay, away from Hai Phong, our clients and most importantly our computers.

Saturday afternoon was spent on the boat chilling out and admiring the scenery (I actually managed to start one of the 4 books I had brought with me and hadn’t had a chance yet to read) before we climbed the 400+ steps, in 100% humidity, to the top of Titop Island where we got beautiful (sounds like sing guy – tone going up) views over the bay.

We spent a lovely evening on our private boat named the Little Dragon (after the local legend of a dragon which descended from the mountains and carved out the 3000 islands which make up the bay) before visiting Hang Sung Sot cave and a floating village on Sunday morning.
I think we were all in need of some down time, ready for our final week in Hai Phong.
