After two interesting weeks in China and Vietnam we all arrived well in Halong Bay. There, we had the pleasure to board a very nice ship and cruised through the idillic and beautiful pillars and islets. Halong Bay is known as a world heritage since the year 1994 and it is the number one tourist hub in northern Vietnam. After lunch, everybody took a kayak and discovered the little caves that are situated in the sea, later on we climbed up one of the many hills and enjoyed the view over the pillars and the uncoubtable cruise ships in the sea. Back on the boat, our study trip photographer let his drone up in the sky to capture the beauty of HaLong Bay from a bird’s point of view. These amazing pictures can also be seen on his instagram @swissbirdseye and on Youtube at Swiss Bird’s Eye.
In the night we had the pleasure to learn more about the vietnamese kitchen from chefs. They teached us for example how to do vietnamese springrolls, all on the top deck of the boat. Meanwhile, everybody could enjoy the amazing sunset before heading to dinner. After dinner a happy sit together on the boat ended this nice day.
