As our houseboat was mooring at Titop Island a photojournalist in our group momentarily placed his camera gear on the ledge of the boat. Another houseboat nearby bumped our vessel and his camera bag, containing a special Nikon film camera, feel over the edge into the Bay. He immediately dived and retrived the gear but his equipment was ruined as well as several rolls of film. This was a great pity as he had come to Halong Bay to get some good pictures. It certainly pays not to place any objects on the ledge of the ship as bumps and rolls are a normal part of the journey. Fortunately our friend was able to get a replacement for the same camera in Hanoi a few days later.

Lots of food and produce from which to choose. High tide covers the beach umbrellas Lorraine feels the need for a cup of tea, One tea with milk and no sugar please. Cleaning up the shop in a spare moment. Take the hike to the top of the island as the views are very impressive. Boats of all shapes and sizes. The Bay is quiet and peaceful despite a large number of boats. View from the top of the island. No wonder Halong Bay is a tourist magnet. The sun sparkles on the water. A young traveller makes it to the top. The flag of the Republic of Vietnam set against the beauty of Halong Bay. Halong Bay from the top of the island. Halong Bay from the top of the island.
