Our Swansea Bay, Mumbles and the Gower Peninsula Trip

A couple of weekends ago, Vicky and I took a trip up to the Gower Peninsula, a short drive from Swansea City Centre, located in Swansea Bay. We had heard that it was a little like Cornwall, with its limestone cliffs and beautiful, sandy beaches and we were absolutely blown away by how gorgeous this part of the country really is.

There are two ways to get to Sapa from Hanoi: an overnight bus or an overnight train. Although the bus is cheaper and slightly quicker, it is less private. The train offered cabins for up to 4 people, with beds, bedding and snacks included.
