Touring Halong Bay.

With three Dutch guys, we hired a jeep and driver for a loop tour of northwestern Vietnam. Many "hill tribes" live in the area, still living a traditional lifestyle.

This includes a visit to remote Dien Bien Phu, where the French forces were defeated.

The last major part of my visit to Vietnam was to the town of Sapa in the north. It is a hill tribe town with much hiking. Vietnam's tallest mountain, Fansipan, is nearby.
