Ha Long Bay
With emerald-green waters, limestone islands and mystical caves, all while touring on Junk Boats, Ha Long Bay draws travelers to her every day and is certainly one of our favorites in South East Asia.
Sleeping on a Junk Boat, while doing day visits to floating villages, taking rowing tours, and getting to jump off the boat into the cool refreshing water, is so relaxing and fun plus gives you a great insight to local living and seeing nature’s beauty up close.
No matter what your budget, we highly recommend you choose your junk boat tour wisely and spend a few extra dollars to get a better experience and higher quality boat. We have done three tours since 2008 and loved Signature Cruises. You can read all about our recent trip to Ha long Bay right here.

The Lune Theatre productions that you can catch in Saigon, Hanoi and in a purpose-built performance space in Hoi An. These shows are magical and beautiful, featuring traditional music and instruments, dance, drama and more. The show we saw in Hoi An, “The Mist” beautifully illustrates the life of rice farmers in the Mekong Delta. If you get a chance, go.
We will mention Vietnamese water puppet shows. They are great for kids and a lot of fun. These short performances are traditional and well worth seeing. Buy tickets to Saigon’s water puppet show here.
