Adventures in Northern Vietnam (P1) – Ninh Binh & Ha Long Bay


Adventures in Northern Vietnam, Part I: Ninh Binh, and Ha Long Bay / Bai Tu Long Bay


In Episode 014, adventureViV and her CameraMan explore Ninh Bình and Ha Long Bay / Bai Tu Long Bay. Because Northern Vietnam is incredibly beautiful and there’s so much to show you, we’ll save Sa Pa (Sapa) and Hanoi for next episode.

Ninh Binh is known as the “Ha Long (Halong) Bay on land.” As we’ve traveled up the coast from Saigon, many of our new friends recommended we visit Ninh Binh — thank you! This place is gorgeous, even on a cloudy and overcast day. Can you imagine what Ninh Binh looks like on a clear day?! We rent a motorbike and ride around Ninh Binh, Tam Coc, and Trang An, visiting the Bich Dong Pagoda, Trang An Grottoes, and Mua Mountain and Caves. Ninh Binh is only a short train or bus ride from Hanoi, so if you’re in town, definitely spend two days exploring the area.

After a quick overnight in Hanoi (luckily for us on a Friday night when the Night Market was in full action), we went on a 3 day, 2 night cruise to Bai Tu Long Bay. We discovered Handspan Indochina Travels, an eco-conscious company that focuses on responsible travel. What an amazing tour company! Our cruise on the Treasure Junk was a dream come true, especially since we visited the less crowded, more remote, and more beautiful neighbor of Ha Long (Halong) Bay. We thoroughly enjoyed our suite upgrade — thank you!

Watch us cruise past gigantic limestone structures, kayak in calm waters, fly the drone on remote beaches, visit fishing villages, and participate in morning Tai Chi sessions.

Stay tuned for our upcoming episode, where we show you beautiful terraced rice fields of Sa Pa (Sapa) and the old world charm of Hanoi and more.
