Vicky and I knew that during our 5 days in Hanoi we were going to want to do a tour of Halong Bay. Not only was it recently named one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, but after two months in China, we were dying to see the ocean. After only a day in Hanoi, it was very clear that many other travelers had the same thing in mind, as Hanoi is literally riddled with tourist agencies offering Halong Bay Cruises.
The longer you spend in Asia the more you start to see opportunities to get things for less. Sure, there’s the regular street haggling that everyone is aware of, but what about haggling for accommodation? Did you know that you can get rooms for cheaper than they are offered?
All throughout Japan, Korea, and China, Vicky and I never really took a full on guided tour. I guess it just didn’t interest us. We were on a budget and for the most part felt secure and independent enough to go anywhere by ourselves.
However, we threw all that out the window the minute we got to Sapa and heard about Sapa Sisters – a two day trekking tour through the area.
With the holidays fast approaching, Vicky and I are making our way through Vietnam and absolutely loving it. Come start this new adventure with us as we make our way into South East Asia.
