The weather at the beginning of our tour was slightly overcast but it soon cleared to clear sunny skies. Halong Bay can be cool and drizzly from February to April and fog can impair your view of many lovely islands and landmarks. In summer the risk of tropical storms greatly increases and this can sometimes disrupt schedules. Most of the houseboats that we saw were comfortable and could be quite cosy if the weather turned nasty. Mid afternoon on the first day we stopped at Titop Island which has a little beach. The swimming is good and there are lots of people around having a good time.

New facilities for tourists and locals. Lorraine puts her feet up with a good book. Waiting patiently for stragglers to return. The houseboats have great charm. Our comfortable bedroom. Cosy bathroom with hot shower. Approaching Dao Titop (Titop Island). Make shift ramp with handrail helps us get onshore. It doesn't get much easier than this !! Lorraine and Natalie take time out for a swim. Vietnamese children explore the island. To swim or not to swim that is the question. Let's climb to the top of the island !! Shop keeper brings her boat close to shore. Gives new meaning to the term FLOATING A COMPANY !! Getting some fresh fruit at a good price.
