Throwback to my first trip to vietnam. took a day trip from the romantic hanoi to the nearby town ninh binh. the view at tam cốc-bích Động, a.k.a. halong bay on land is incredible. the magnificent rock mountains, pagoda, moist rice paddies, slow roaming water buffalos, the smell of the gradually ascending and swirling smokes from the prescribed burns of the fields, painted an idyllic picture of the place. can’t wait to visit the actual halong bay itself next time!
