The journey to Halong Bay was a pleasant four hour drive followed by a small boat that lead to the main cruise. We had high expectations of the boat as the pictures looked fabulous. Our excitement soon disappeared as we approached a shabby old looking boat. Inside wasn't any better. Our boat was totally different to what we booked.

I'm pleased to announce my rash on my face has all but disappeared and Elizabeth Arden is now my all time hero!

So we have just Hanoi to explore and hopefully we can find somewhere memorable to spend at least part of Christmas Day. Suggestions on a postcard please.
