Last weekend a friend of Zack’s from Northwestern came to visit and we all went to Ha Long Bay; a natural UNESCO World Heritage Site five hours east of Hanoi. Expectations were low. Having done a lot of reading about the area for my work, I am well aware of how polluted and poorly managed this site has become. However, we were pleasantly surprised and had a wonderful few days enjoying the spectacular scenery that makes Ha Long so special. Without time to write a proper post, here are a few photos from the trip:
