Hanoi Day 5 Itinerary –


As it was nearing sunset when we came back from the swim in the bay, we went up to the Top Deck of the Au Co Cruise Ship to view the sun setting. 

To capture the sunset better, Vin switched to “sun set” mode on our Nikon camera to take the following pictures (The surrounding was not so dark yet).

I brought along my travel journal and decided to draw the sunset scenery impromptu with just my black pen.

It was tranquil to watch the sun setting over the landscape faraway. Only the three of us were there. The rest of the tourists on board went back to their room to rest to wait for the next activity, a cooking demonstration.


Look at the sun slowly disappearing behind the limestones formations…
