Vietnam, Hong Kong & China 8/19
Hello from Shanghai, China! It’s been a few weeks, but the countries we have been through don’t have the greatest Internet connections. After Angkor Wat in Cambodia, we ventured southeast through Phnom Penh, Cambodia and across the border into Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. After spending a few days there, we caught a flight to the North of Vietnam to Hanoi where we took a trip to Halong Bay. Despite the rain, it was quite amazing. From Hanoi we flew to Hong Kong and spent a week at the home of some relatives of friends back home. We saw the sights and eventually had to say good bye to our five star accommodations and make our way into mainland China. Yangshuo, China, South of Guilin, was our next destination. The mountains and rivers in this area are something else. They are actually depicted on the back of the 20¥ bill. We also went North of Guilin to the Longji Rice Terraces. Unbelievable! They were huge. We hiked around for several hours and still only saw a small portion of the area. The heat was really getting to us so we decided to leave the area and make way for Shanghai. Enjoy the photos!
Off to Shanghai! More to come.
Zai jian (good bye in Chinese)
