I went to Hanoi and Halong Bay in 2011. Hanoi is developing pretty fast while Halong Bay is the one that left me mesmerized. Here are the pictures I took. It's not really organized but I'll try my best to write down what I remember.

|Hello Halong Bay! A must visit site!! Trust me, it has one of the most beautiful sceneries in the world.|
|I'm not a fan of oyster, but this is like WOW!! I watched my friend's cousin smoked it and ate it on the spot. Not bad!!|
The fun doesn't stop here. There were more and you've gotta experience it yourself. I really enjoyed my stay there. Thanks to Linh, a dear Vietnamese friend of mine who brought me around and tell me about her country.
