During the last Bank Holiday weekend, we decided to make the most of the glorious weather and head down to the Camping and Caravanning Club campsite at Sennen Cove.

Visiting Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay, Vietnam

After a few days in Hanoi and awesome time trekking in the Sapa region of Northern Vietnam, we returned to Hanoi before departing, once again, to head east to the coast! We were off to one of Vietnams greatest UNESCO world heritage sites… Halong Bay and the nearby (lesser known and less visited) Bai Tu Long Bay are known for their emerald waters and thousands of towering limestone karsts (islands) topped by rainforest.
