“I have seen pictures of Halong Bay, but nothing beats the actual scenery:
an array of sublime islands standing majestically before me!
Halong Bay is ranked as one of the most popular tourist sites in Vietnam and consists of some
2,000 limestone islands which are recognised as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Many of the islands have caves and we can’t wait to explore them!
Haha, the tour guide has just quizzed us on how to say 2,000 in Vietnamese!
Wait a minute, before we try to tackle such a big number,
shall we learn some basic numbers in Vietnamese first?
Let’s have Jacob show us how to count from 1 to 10 in Vietnamese!”

“Amongst the approximately 2000 islands in Halong Bay, Cat Ba Island is the largest.
I am excited to hike around Cat Ba National Park and kayak in the emerald waters of Lan Ha Bay.
Island hopping on a kayak and paddling my way around the islands will be an unforgettable experience.
To thank the local who got me a kayak rental, I should get him a gift.
But first, let me read up on the local gifting etiquette."
