Halong Bay is even more impressive than what people say about it. You can imagine of a bay surrounded by clear blue sea water and interleaved with the limestone in many shapes. Indeed, Halong is a combination of forest and sea with many unique ecosystems …
My first impression of Halong is a busy travel city with tourists from around the world. Suburban is dedicated to plant crops.
We boarded a cruise ship of a middle-aged mistress. 7, 8 staffs on board were members of a family. People always keep smiling though we encountered many difficulties in understanding each other’s language. I felt ther were really happy when they were working together, eating and resting between a beautiful landscape. Many people think that such a life is precarious, but as I said, happiness depends on the perspective of what they really want in life.
After a day on the Gulf, we spend the night in the little house by the sea. I still keep the habit of getting up early in 5am, but this time is not in below minus 15 degree weather but in a peaceful nature with fresh air. For the first time after a long time, I enjoyed a truly worthy life. We sailed to explore pristine places, ate together under a starry sky and shared the stories coming from all around the world.
As an entrepreneur, I always think of the pricing for everything around myself. But the experience in Halong to me is really priceless. Not any newspaper, magazine or advertisment can bring the feeling of those who discovery here by themselves.
