Ha Long Bay is beautiful. More beautiful than Milford Sound. Even though the weather was crappy. Even though it was steaming hot when it wasn't spitting raining. Even though there were thousands of boats and hundreds of thousands of tourists. It is still one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
The boat trip lasted couple of days. The highlight wasn't the scenery though. It was a group of middle aged Indonesian ladies that were sharing the same boat ride. They were 7. They got on the boat and immediately pooled out a deck of cards and packs of cigarettes. Add glasses of whiskey and piles of small notes on the table, and you get the picture. I was mesmerized.
