This post has got nothing to do with books, but a little post about Ha Long Bay. I mentioned Ha Long Bay in my last post Disgrace, J.M. Coetzee, and forgot to insert a litte picture of Ha Long Bay in the book post. Then I thought, what the heck, just do a post which is unrelated about book review and hope this post introduces you to one place at the far corner of the earth and entices you to visit it one day.
This is how Ha Long Bay looks like through the grotto.

and the many archipelagos of limestone islands surrounding the region.

This is a better video which gives you a taste of how the boat journey is like:
