If anyone is ever in north Vietnam, Ha Long Bay is an absolute must. We were lucky to get our own junk for a cruise around the bay. Unfortunately the weather was playing particularly nicely (not uncommon) with a lot of haze, but this shot sums up the beauty of the place, as long as you can get away from the other boats.

Got to go to Viet nam in 2000. The weather in Ha Long was terrible when we were in Hanoi, so bolted south. After seeing you pic, is sure makes me want to get back there.
Thanks for posting

Amazing beauty hides from so many of us who haven't been in the areas that are shown at this web site. Nice work.

Thanks for the comments - it was generally too hazy, but at least there was no fog. Here are a few more from the area:

Thanks for all the comments. It was a once in a lifetime trip and there were low tourist numbers so not many junks in the vicinity. I sat back in the shade by the captain's 'bridge' and suddenly thought that the empty deck and mast would lead into a shot nicely. It was just a case of letting the landscape line up!
