Cruising Halong Bay, Gulf of Tonkin, South China sea, Vietnam:

Last night we arrived on Cat Ba Island in the gulf of Tonkin. Cruising Halong bay on a Chinese Junk boat was an amazing experience.
We were virtually alone on our trip through the limestone monoliths because we were taking a unusual route.
One of the tour guests, Jim House, who’s previously been on several of our tours is shooting a medium format Pentax. He’s having a blast shooting through tons of film!
Earlier in the day, on our way from Hanoi to Halong City (where we caught our boat) we stopped at some rice paddies long enough to make some great photos.

If you are interested in coming along on one of the small group photo tours that Jim Cline and I are leading, please check out this link

Today we head to Hai Phong, then by road to Hanoi and catch the night train to Lao Cai. Upon arrival in Lao Cai, we’re going to visit some local hill tribe markets around Bac Ha. I’ll try to post from Bac Ha, if internet is available. Cheers, Karl
