Floating Markets - Local boats filled with fruits and snacks

In Halong, you may find floating boat carrying lots of fruits and snacks. It is interesting to drop into one of these and take your snacks! On such little boats, you are served whatever you like - chips, beer, seafood, sweets and more. Some of these offer a unique way of enjoying seafood where the fish is caught right in front of your eyes and then cooked to perfection in the sauce you want. It’s definitely an once-in-a-lifetime experience!

    I found the cold of N. Vietnam a wonderful break from the heat of Thailand. I was aseblutoly loving the cold rain and fog at the time, but it sounds like you're over it at this point. At least you have sun and heat just a short hop away—no such luck here in Eugene, where the rain keeps falling and falling and falling.

    When you visit the Amazing Caves (Hang Sung Sot), as it's a very busy bay full of other tourist junks, you'll see a few boats that act as floating shops. They sell snacks, biscuits, drinks, cigarettes and even fruit and vegetables. You name it, they'll probably have it but as you're far from any conventional land based shops, expect to pay that little bit extra
