We enjoyed our stay here. The staff were really great especially gaining our admiration in dealing with a trying, particular national group also staying at the hotel when we were there. Nothing was a bother to them. when we went to Halong Bay for two days, they kept our luggage for us while we were away. The young man in the penthouse bar was one of the few bartenders on our tour who could make a decent cocktail. Everyone here were really helpful.

... or rules but somehow it all works, lots of honking and swerving (see video). I had to hold Ashlee back on spending half our funds in the first hour.

Eventually we got through and were met by our pick up after we went to the ATM and withdrew a few million. Millionaires eventually.
We then headed to the town centre and this was where my nerves were nearly shattered. The driver was absolutely mental and his hand was constantly on his horn. I'm here and i'm coming through- get out of the way attitude.
... I did too, although it was 5:40 am and our train wasn't schedule to reach my destination until 7:49 (if it was even on time). But in the fear of my clock being off, or the rare occasion we were way early, I started getting ready. I woke up excited. My uncertainty and exhaustion from the day before had disappeared entirely. From seeing the sun rise over my favorite view in the world, to being reminded of the hearts that the people of this country ...
... to me or it’s a common thing but when I get in from being out in the heat (which is every day nowadays) I take off my trousers and the last thing I want to do is put them back on any time soon. They are always kind of sweaty, not like soaked through but just that uncomfortable level of damp that you don’t want next to your skin.
Now I said that we are grumpy and unsociable, that makes us sound bad; but the second that we think someone’s feelings might get hurt ...
