Vietnam & Cambodia Tour
Sunday Feb 23 & Monday Feb 24, 2014

This is a blog post of our last two days in Vietnam. We were on an overnight sailing excursion on Halong Bay so we could not post to the blog last night. So this evening we have quite a few images to share.

We spent yesterday and until midday today out on Halong Bay. We visited Tip Top Island, a floating fishing village and a location called surprise cave. The mist was pretty thick and added an air of mystery.

Once back to port, we spent the day traveling back to Hanoi, en route we stopped for some photography which included some interesting water buffalo and garden plots from one of the small villages in this region. Each family in the village has a plot of land to plant their vegetable garden, usually just on the edge of town.

Once we arrived back into Hanoi we had dinner at the Rain Forest and headed to the airport for our flight to Hue. We will be in this region for the next three nights.

We hope you enjoy this selection of images from the past two days. Good night from all the Photo Trekkers in Vietnam.

Great shots. We're really enjoying the chance to experience the trip though your pictures.
I though maybe the fellow on the motorcycle was just delivering the purchases from Marg's latest shopping spree.
