Open your eyes. On the street light. The clock says 5 o'clock in the morning. Strange, I thought, but maybe in Vietnam so early dawn. He laid his head on the pillow and passed out. Knocked a phone call in the room. Pick up the phone and hear:"Are you ready?" P.....TS! Slept, I got it! Sprang up and pushing each other began to dash around the room, collecting the rest of your stuff. Well, that evening the main collected. About the included Breakfast could forget. It's more just upset me, Breakfast for me is sacred. In a few minutes we were downstairs, but the bus had already left.

Nothing on the rest of us, now he'll come back for You. We took a breather and calmed down. Indeed, in 7-10 minutes the bus came and we got booted. It was a minibus with 18 seats. We were the last, which he took. We were on our way to Halong.

We ( tourists) in the bus there were 15 persons. I can say that all those who were on the bus and traveled by the same company. No we have never joined and not split. And on the boat we only had 15 two days. However, to spend the night on the island went only five people ( we three Singaporeans), and the rest spent the night on the boat. Ship this boat I have not raised a hand to call. Although everything was clean, tidy, friendly and delicious.

And then we got finally to the point of origin. We boarded a tender and went to the boat. We met a neatly dressed in uniforms stafy and allocated everyone to their quarters. Us cabins were not supposed to, since we had to spend the night on the island. We are located on the upper deck on the sun loungers. After a while, everyone was invited to lunch. Everything was decently tasty and beautiful. While we were having dinner, our boat approached the Islands and anchored, waiting for when we finish to eat.

Finished. Rested for a while and everyone was invited to tender (aka lifeboat. Hanging over us the whole way, tied on the rope). We were taken to the island. On this island there was a big cave, which we visited. The cave was really big and in height and length, a beautifully lit and landscaped. Well made steps and paths. Just spent about half an hour and returned to the boat.

Originally, when we started off from the port, the Bay is not impressive. On the horizon, in the haze loomed the mountains. Nothing special, even a little disappointed. And the weather is not Sunny. As you get closer to the Islands, the experience has varied for the better. Haze dissipated. And when after visiting the cave, when our boat started to move between these Islands, and even went the setting sun... ! Wow! Tacking between the Islands with steep slopes, overgrown with bushes and trees, we came to the houses on the water. Here we waited for kayaking.

As always, our schooner was anchored, and wishing to kayak boarded the tender and went to the floating house. Here we were given a boat for two, and we sailed around the island. I have the feeling that floating in some canyon with steep banks, and around the silence and weak splash from your paddles. Great! Enjoyed the nature and returned to the schooner.

Sunset was nearing an end and we approached the Harbor of Cat BA island. Here and crashing our boat. Began to lay the table for dinner and the five of us drove the boat to shore. Here we waited for the "keyway". As it turned out, I had to drive forty minutes to the other end of the island. The road was very picturesque. Arrived in the dark. The hotel stood on the promenade, and the promenade is beautifully glittered and lit up. We were fed in the restaurant on the 12th floor with views of the waterfront. Go left and see the area.

Night Cat BA made a favorable impression. Many cafes, shops and hotels. Little traffic and noise. After Hanoi, you can talk in a low voice. Walked, sat to drink some juice and went to sleep. The day was just wonderful. In the morning we waited for Breakfast, and a "keyway" on the dock. When we arrived at the pier for us from the schooner left the boat and picked us up. After that, the schooner was sent back to ha long. A few hours, we enjoyed the views of the Bay, then headed to the port.

So ended our trip to Halong Bay. Went ashore and we were taken to a cafe where we waited for lunch. After lunch was put into a van and taken to Hanoi. My stuff we left in the hotel, which took us there and we returned. The trip was impressive and interesting. The rest of the evening we spent the evening walking tour of Hanoi. I had to go to sleep. Tomorrow was an early flight to da Nang. Ordered at the taxi Desk and went to sleep. Checked the alarms and fell asleep.

What gives such a "crafty" card for Gibraltar, if not a secret?
In go better with MTS, tested, works everywhere, at least from those countries where I was. Any applications and deposits by a certain amount is required. The problem was only in Mexico, none of the phones with the SIM card MTS didn't want to be friends with the local operators. The issue resolved after a letter in the MTS, or rather two, as at first they were surprised and answered that they have an agreement with the Mexican operator, I do not remember his name, and everything should work like a problem in my phone. But I have had several phones and none of them MTS to local operators is not hooked up, but English SIM cards T-Mobile connect to the network without any problems.
After the second letter in the MTS that describes the problem, something they apparently decided to find out. It turned out that MTS just forgot to extend the contract with the Mexican operator. In the end, after a week of MTS earned. ...

Nothing, actually, just one of my earnings is to work remotely via the Internet, and I receive payment therefore, the other is not possible. And this card is convenient to pay because it is a dollar and conversion is directly and not by some sweeping ways of rubles into dollars and then into the national currency. And besides, no fee when paying at POS terminals, and when removing the cash Commission is charged. I pay her house everywhere in all the shops (or rather the wife with her shopping for groceries, etc.), never at home still not there for more than half a year of use, except that our vigilant sometimes sellers wife denied her admission because the card is not her (the name on the map clearly indicate gender). ...

About write-off in the supermarket $ 15 in Ho Chi Minh city (see above) added that until the promise has in store return never happened, even though it's been three weeks. A few days ago, I wrote to my Bank about this tranzactii, promised to contact the Bank. ...

I'm not even surprised. Most likely a Vietnamese Bank was not going to return anything, and the store, too.
In their homespun logic You're a tourist (of course not just You), that is, the object for Nai... sorry cheating. Left and went to his North, soon following a fool...., sorry tourist will come.
Well this is Vietnam, is among Vietnamese decent people of course, but it carries with it the gene - "lie to farang" because farang to exist, as, for example, the chicken exists in order to lay eggs.
When I tried to inflate in Vietnam, selling for example instead of tea dust from Vietnamese roads, as they love to do, I always tell them that I am not a tourist, I live in Nha Trang, and if they will sell me the Boo, then I'm all tourists will say that you have a bad store, but if the tea is good, I will advertise all Russian your smelly shop. Sometimes helped. The trouble is that they are wild there, most do not understand guys either in English or in Russian. ...

That is the same about solid Nai... My Bank finally returned the money today. Helped a Fax I received in the store from Vietcombank. Just wonder how they even Fax'd done nothing to return not going. In Vietnam every step necessary to keep your eyes open. But if you think that you were not pinned, so just still don't know what you got ;) . ...

Alas, Yes, it is, though so , to be honest, maybe this is the beauty of this country. :DOWN :suicide
My friend is now in Nha Trang, today already three times called and asked what to do - paid for pictures - deducted 3 times from the card - then said that the payment failed and he is still a cache paid. Called and asked his office to check, there is a delusion - the purchase of one and the same for $ 385, and write-offs of as many as four, but the last undone for some reason.
It is very bad English and Vietnam, I advised him, now already is not convenient somehow.... ...
