The tour guide is taking us to visit Thien Cung grotto.
We have to get off the boat here.
First we had to climb up steps to the mouth of the grotto covered on both sides by thick forest.
We have to enter this narrow gate!
Getting in "you will be more astonished in front of the very animated and splendid beauty which is made from stalactites"
"On the east wall of the grotto there is a grandiose and imposing picture with characters of tales" But the only characters you will see here are us 11 aunties hahaha!!!
8 of the 11 aunties trying to fit in all our faces in one selfie, hehe!
Tour guide trying to make us see rock formations of some characters but we are too busy smiling for camera!
In between the caves we found spots where we could see Halong Bay
Then we come down the slope again!
raining again and we had to dash for the boat, (for those with no raincoats)
Lunch on board the boat and we are all drenched...I brought a change of clothes
hot tea to fortify your body
trinkets for sale on board
last pose on boat deck before we are chased off downstairs as boat is docking!
brrrr...wet, but not cold
on the wharf we wait for our photos
see our nice photos by the boat tour girl?
Bye!!! This is the end of our boat cruise on Halong Bay, a "world heritage of outstanding beauty."
