I'd like to say we didn't hear a single horn while out on the water, but like ol' Abe, I cannot tell a lie...
Ah well, it is Vietnam.*
*Thanks to the French; it'd be China, otherwise. ;)
Our boat. Definitely one of the top four on the water.

Our suite. Complete with private balcony. Why yes, we do know how to splurge...
The floating fishing village of Vung Vieng
|Rower in bamboo boat|
Vung Vieng seems to get by on fishing, pearl culturing, and toursim. Teenage girls and women, but some young men, meet the tourist boats in their little woven bamboo embarkations and row visitors around the village.
We took up the paddles, too. Had to get a little exercise!
|Halong Bay from vantage point|
After exercise for the arms, we hiked up one of the islands to get a different view of Halong Bay.
