What an incredible experience. Mom and I booked the Christina Cruise for 2 days/1 night to see Halong Bay. On our trip we met a couple of Spanish couples; Ana & Fernando and Lucia & Sergei. Both couples sat with us during our dining experiences. They were a funny and happy bunch. Apparently Ana & Fernando had seen us in Nha Trang (a few days earlier) and she had struck up the conversation with us, upon our arrival. Lucia & Sergei had seen us at the Hue airport, just the evening before, so we saw how small the world was really becoming!
After exploring the caves, swimming in a tiny beach area, and returning to our boat, we had a hearty dinner of various dishes. Later on in the evening, we ventured to go squid fishing, no luck. All in all Halong Bay, a fun experience, but Thailand has better rock formations!
