Ha Long Bay. Translation: Descending Dragon Bay

Our little private beach in the middle of Ha Long Bay fully equipped with hot water, only from 8-10PM, clogged toilets that are sucked out in the morning by a septic boat and painfully chilled nights. BUT we had a rock climbing instructor!

Angkor Wat is ABSOLUTELY amazing! Which is why I really wish they closed it off from the public. We’re only going to ruin it.

Southeast Asia Road Trip 2014 021 1024x682 Our Motorcycle Diaries inspired trip.
