Vietnam - Halong Bay

Day 2: Halong Bay

We woke up around 4.30am to pack our stuff to catch the 5.30am bus to Halong Bay. A ticket costs VND60,0000/40,0000 = RM15 and the journey takes around 4 hours.

i poked out the other lenses....then, they say i looked like Ugly Betty.
Laiyee says i'm not ugly betty but pretty betty...

  1. jin jia song la lu...wa pun ai kiiii....

  2. ki ki!!! jin jia shui!!!
    you better go during summer(hot season) because u can do alot activities like swimming and kayaking.
    :( we cant do anything coz it winter(cold season)

  3. ooo...but phoung ask me go during winter more song wor...damn..i am raising fund now haha...how much did you spend roughly? minus cambodia since i went dy =P

  4. Maybe winter song because it was chill all the time, but u can't swim and kayak, very wasted lor.

    i spent arnd rm2k includes air fares and cambodia.

    but if minus cambodia should be around Rm1.4 like that? coz i think cambodia is more expensive than vietnam in terms of food and lodgings.

    But we travelled in 4 la, so if the room is RM30, 1 ppl around RM7 per night.
