Day seven – Halong Bay and back to Hanoi

We woke up early and made our first stop at Ti Top Island. It’s a small island with a very high tourist per square metre ratio. We climbed 427 stairs to reach the Pagoda at the top where there is a great view to be seen. Or so I hear. I was too busy trying not to puke after climbing the stairs too quickly.

Next up is a buffet breakfast as we sail back into the main port. Then a four hour bus trip back to Hanoi.


We got in to Hanoi and checked back into the hotel. After a freshen-up and some time out we went exploring in search of dinner and things to see and do. Hanoi is way less geared for tourists than Saigon is. It’s definitely the business end of the stick.

After dinner we found Saigon’s Book Street, which is open at night. There’s a concept every city could learn from.
