In the summer of 2010, my family and I went on our traditional vacation to Vietnam. Every year we picked what city to go to, and that year we picked Ha Long Bay. First, I was like why are we going to a bay. But it was a wonderful experience that I got to live in. It was so beautiful with its beautiful emerald water and towering limestone islands topped by rainforests. We stayed on a boat for three days and jee were they rocky. It reminded me not to go on cruises again but the scenery was worth it.
