This hotel seems to be mainly used by business people and large groups. The guide who dropped us said he had never collected from here before. The rooms were quite basic and musty smelling. We washed some clothes and they took 2 days to dry. The staff were wearing their coats in the restaurant - hard to tell who was staff and who were customers - no name badges either. Set on the outskirts of town next to the main lake in town. 5-10 minute walk to restaurants and shops.

Us westerners had been squished around the bus with about half a seat each, i had a Vietnamese man sat on my feet for about 2 hours and another asleep on my shoulder for about 3. Personal space obviously doesn't translate! Luckily they got off before the end. Our research had been wrong ...
... though they would prove to be that off road, they were going to be exactly the opposite on road.
Having water proofed my bags to the best of my ability I set off at 6.30am. Within the hour I would be soaked through and lying flat on my back in the middle of the road. The confluence of circumstances that led me & my bike to be sprawled on the tarmac were numerous and mainly of my own making.
Firstly, I was driving too fast for the conditions. I knew I ...
<b>Hanoi to Halong (5<sup>th</sup> – 7<sup>th</sup>)</b> Wet and pretty industrial, got me used to the roads and the bike.
