Halong Lavender Cruise

Halong Bay – Titop Island – Ho Dong Tien Cave – Pearl Farm – Sung Sot Cave

This cruise was great for checking out Ha Long Bay – a whirlwind tour of a few of the quieter islands, which included kayaking and a cave hike (both make for some excellent FOMO-inducing photographs). In between the activities, the HILARIOUS (Smiley, Jason!) Halong Lavender Cruise crew fed us some pretty phenomenal food and you can’t help but feel pampered with the private hot tubs overlooking the Bay. Shout out to Alex for being incredibly friendly and answering all of our questions about Vietnamese culture and about the crazy islands all around us!
