During our trip to Vietnam, Eleanor and I spend 2 nights, 3 days on a trip around Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long bay and Lan Ha Bay.

I wanted to show you some of the amazing sites we saw during our trip.
The Hospital Cave is a hospital built into a cave on Cat Ba Island. It couldn’t be seen from the air or the ground making it a safe haven during the American War. It was abandoned after 1975, but now it is a popular tourist attraction on the island. It is build in to three levels and contains 17 rooms and even a small swimming pool. The photo below was taken at a viewpoint at the hospital.
There were some ups and down on this trip. If you read my full two week itinerary HERE you will see what I mean. However the experience of getting to meet fellow travellers, jumping off the boat into the deliciously warm sea and kayaking in stunning bays was totally worth it.
