Paul Bear and Bamboo in Vietnam


Our Journey


Next day I got up early it was raining outside
I concerned Ho Long bay might not beautiful as I wish
The Van from company tooak us at the hotel about 8.30 AM
Just the 2 of us in the van thought it might not high season
That was good for us so we can lay down on the seat

It took about 3-3.5 hours from Hanoi to Halong city
on the way to Halong city the van stop at handicraft center
I saw many vans and buses stop here
I didn't take picture cause we had just 15 mins
When we arrived at the pier many people
buses, cars and van were there..very busy
finally I got the answer the junk took their old guests
back to the land and will take new guests traval in the bay
everyday always do like this as the circle
Many tourists take one day trip
but some stay 1 night in the junk
Our junk is name "Jewel of The Bay"







Stay one night in the junk is my dream
and Paul Bear my man made my dream comes true
I want to say"Thank you"to him 1,000 times
but my Paul bear want nothing
just only hope I'll be a good girl
Our Tourist guide is name Dong Viet Gob
but I called him "Viet" it's easy to remember
in the junk had about 10 guests
2 Canadian , 2 English and 3 kids 1 Singaporian
1 Australian and 1 cute Thai girl



after lunch we take walk around the junk
we talked with Canadian couple
who stayed second night in the junk
They travel in many country in Asia
as India, China,Cambodia and Thailand
They asked me Which one I like between
Pang-Nga Bay and Halong bay..I can't tell now







After the junk rode about 3 hours
Time for kayak it was a good experience for me
during I paddled the boat I saw many Islands...
as same as I saw many trash in the water
That was too bad seems like water is very dirty







after that we back to the junk
Paul bear wanted some beer to dring
and I wanted some snack...
a couple paddle around the junk
sell many sanck such as beer,wine,snack
we had some rest before dinner at 7.00 PM





Tonight food was so good
all was seafood and vegestable
after dinner it time for fishing
3 girls and their parent had a great time
Me and Paul bear still enjoy drinking wine
and talk with Canadian about our trip and their trip
they talked about Thailand and Our beloved King
and How much they enjoy their trip in Thailand
now I can tell them which place I like
Phang-Nga bay more quiet and clearn
and it made me realized why many Farang
Like to visit and love Thailand





Next day we get up early
after breakfast we went to the cave
I can see beautiful view of Halong Bay
on the top of the mountain









we back to the junk had lunch
before we check out and head back to Hanoi
It was a great time in Halong bay
especially a great time with my great guy
"my Paul bear"

Had some thing to eat and took walk before back to hotel

Next day we went to Military History Museum
In that day I had problem with the waitress
she disn't understand what did Paul bear order her
when the food coming my breakfast was the right one
but Paul bear was wrong but she too both back to kichen
then took my breakfast aroud the restaurant
and ask their customers..Who order this plate?
It made me angry cause when I cam back to me
It was cold and disease already in my food







After that we walk to Ba Dinh square

we stoped at some place I didn't know the name
but I did take some picture for you guys..for sure

After ChangSan strom gone the view not that beautiful


Old boat Don't know why Paul Bear want me sat on it

About 1 hour we arrived in Hue city
we went to the airport but no one there
An airport far from the city about 30 kms.
we took taxi to the city just look around and in Hue
we had bad experience about Vietnamese

Airport in Hue city


Hue is located in Thua Thien prefecture
and is in the central part of Vietnam.
Located 660 km from Ha Noi and
1080 km from Saigon, Hue has always been
considered the fulcrum of Vietnam's
two rice baskets, the Red river delta and the Mekong delta.
Hue became the name of Vietnam's most well known
ancient capital because of the local mispronunciation
of the word Hoá in Thuâ.n Hoá.

Atmosphere in Hue city


Hue University



Bicycles and motorcycles same in many city in Vietnam


As I told you I met Thai guy who work in Saigon
he warn me about Paul bear about Vietnamese
but as long as we traveling in Veitnam
we didn't got problem yet untill...
we took cyclo in Hue city..it was bad momory

Market in Hue


we just wanted to help Vietnamese to make money
that was reason why we took cyclo
we met some guy who ride cyclo he and
he try to talk with us and make money
Paul bear talked to him "we just want to visit market"
around that area and he said ok 80,000 VND/2 people
at the first time he was very nice and hlep us
took many photos then Paul bear wanted to see
the brige which Americans bombed in Vietnam war
not too far from Market we made dearl with that guy again
about 100,000 VND for 2 people and he agreed
about the after our trip he said we have to pay him
100,000 per person mean 300 THB/person
it was very expensive...500 THB for cyclo
then that guy was every mean and swear to us
finally Paul bear gave him just 250 THB
and told him if he do not take it we will go to police station
See it was Vietnamese trick..we didn't like

Rememberand becareful this bad guy


because I want to try cyclo


we took same taxi back to the airport
many people there..we still unahppy about that guy
and thought if many Vietnamese do that to toursits
not too long toursits will not visit Vietnam any more
make me think about Thailand and Thai people
we 're more friendly and gentle more than Vietnamese
Make me so proud I was born to be Thai..Siamese

My bad experience about Vietnamese not finish yet
if you guys want to know have to wait for while
some cyclo in Hahoi treat un bas also...
~~To be continue~~

Hoi An is a small city on the coast of
the South China Seain central Vietnam
It is located in the Quảng Nam province
Hoi An was an important trading centre
in the 16th and 17th centuries,
where Chinese from various provinces
as well as Japanese, Dutch and Indians settled down.
During this period of the China trade,
the town was called "Hai Pho"
In 1999, the old town was declared World Heritage
by the UNESCO, as a well-preserved example of
a Southeast Asian trading port of the
15th to 19th centuries,whose buildings
display a unique blend of local and foreign influences.

Wedid fly from Saigon to Danang by Vietnam Airline

Thu Bon River was an important river
for trading in the 16th and 17th centuries
