Reizen door Vietnam – Sapa, Hanoi, Halong Bay & Ninh Binh | Cinematische Reisvlog

It's time! We are in Vietnam! We are right in the center of bustling Hanoi This is also the starting point of our adventure! And in this vlog we will discover the highlights which we think you should definitely have seen in the north of Vietnam And that is.

.

.

SAPA HALONG BAY And Hanoi Come with us! The well-known train track of Hanoi Only we had to visit it a little bit sneaky We have a friendly security guard here .

.

.

but actually you are not allowed to come here since 6 days .

.

.

So since October 2019 .

.

.

Too bad! Normally here are those cozy bars along the track When a train arrives, they put everything in Now this is no longer possible Unfortunately! It is forbidden.

We sneaked past a sidetrack to show you because look! The train literally passes their door Unbelievable! Vietnamese Style! with 2 on the back of a motorbike! Not exactly safe without a helmet .

.

.

but ok .

.

.

We have to be somewhere With the busy traffic in Hanoi a scooter is the fastest Grab is very easy to transport for this what is this! Not safe! That is not how you do it! No! We were in a hurry because we had to go to the Puppet Theater in Hanoi And last but not least, continue our journey to Halong Bay! Yes! We are here! Halong Bay in Vietnam! One of the 7 natural wonders of the world! And yes it is really deserved! Take a look around! Awesome! Really beautiful! It is one of the 7 natural wonders of the world which also means that they have an enormous amount of respect for nature here They also know that they have to take care nature must be taken care of! one of the measures they have taken here is the plastic ban I find that very positive! Well done Vietnam! We are going to enjoy a little bit of the peace and beauty! We have an interesting fact from our guide Our guide always has super cool facts! So Wait Halong .

.

.

Halong means 'descending dragon' And the locals think that the region is protected by a dragon Or a dragon family And that the mountains here are 'dragon pearls' so pearls Interesting! That's correct? right? Yes, that's right! We can repeat that well! We enjoyed floating on the waters of beautiful Halong Bay so much That we decided to stay another night on a boat cruise I thought it would be nice to show you our boatcabine On Halong Bay So here we go! Look at that! What a view! That is actually the most important thing and so we will spend the night here and the bathroom Cute! We have a sunset in one of the most beautiful environments where we have already been Yes, a very unique setting Again we are lucky that we can be here With such colors It must be convenient with the weather those mountains in the background .

.

.

the blue water what else do you need? just enjoy! early in the morning, a second surprise awaited us this lovely lady came to wake us personally Yes No ! That is not true! We were a little naive She was there for commerce because she wanted us to sell pearls Since we were in a good mood we decided to give the local economy a boost and we bought a few earrings Are they are real? We do not know that.

But it was a very nice experience! Have you had enough of the hustle and bustle in Hanoi then you can always go to .

.

.

Ninh Binh! About 100km from Hanoi you'll find a lot of beautiful landscapes and lots of greenery there just beautiful! Ninh Binh is a region that we have already heard a lot about from our fellow travelers It is a 100km from Hanoi What we can recommend is the literary temple! This temple is located in the center of Hanoi And is the ideal start for your trip to Ninh Binh You have 4 magical creatures within Confucianism the phoenix, the turtle, the tiger And.

.

.

What else? The Dragon! Here behind us we see the phoenix which actually brings happiness If you rub his belly we hope to have good luck! Below you will find the turtle If you rub its head, you hope to live long I think we are currently on one of the coolest viewpoints in Ninh Binh This place is called Hang Mua? Hang Mua yes! yes, Vietnamese is not yet our strongest side But the view is super beautiful! Even though it is already getting dark in front of us there is also a fantastic dragon DRAGON! Here we are We wait for the night train to .

.

.

Sapa! The north of Vietnam Apparently very beautiful and we will indeed do that with the night train it is a bit comparable to that from Bangkok to Chiang Mai And I am very curious if we can sleep well.

.

.

1 thing is certain! It will be a great adventure! There is always something to see on such a night train Come with us! I have already looked through the windows and it looks completely different than .

.

Thailand, Chiang Mai Bangkok The standard here is slightly higher, I think What do you think? I think it so! If we have such a room, it's good! This is how our room looks like super romantic just a correction! This is not comparable with Chiang Mai At least not with 4 years ago I could turn this into my studyroom And can spend hours here It is almost bigger than our dorm This is not Chiang Mai To give you an idea, this is what Chiang Mai looked like for us .

.

.

So yes this looks much better I think we will sleep here with a peace of mind We'll have a great rest! so let's go there! Yannick is already completely installed! Sleep well! Good morning! We survived the train ride! If you do get off the train so early then you link the useful to the pleasant We are currently visiting a local market Where all the mountain peoples of the North of Vietnam come to sell their things, their crops, their animals even horse heads and puppies it is sometimes quite confronting Move aside! Quite confronting if you are an animal lover but it is really very local! We have never visited such a local market in person So that is very fun to do! Here you really experience the local color The moment that will stay with us for a long time is the market in the North of Vietnam The traditional costume The authentic way of life and deep-rooted culture are aspects that really did appeal to us then we had not yet seen the rice fields of Sapa We have arrived in Sapa! super famous! The North of Vietnam because of its beautiful rice fields and we can only confirm that you see it behind us here giant rice fields! rice fields everywhere! beautiful weather too! Since we are in the mountains, at a certain height the weather can quickly switch for the same money you have a lot of clouds .

.

.

fog or rain we are very lucky we can show you Sapa like this! very grateful! Which really appeals to me about Sapa but in Vietnam overall I noticed is the locality I mean you don't feel like a mass tourist who comes to hang out but rather just as a casual passerby And I think that is very beautiful about Vietnam and Sapa is even more special with those rice fields because actually all people are farmers here rural children going to school They are going to lunch That is a very nice to experience That's what I do it for! That's what you travel for! To be able to experience such things North Vietnam It's a wrap! It has left a very positive impression The impressive landscapes The deep-rooted and authentic culture North Vietnam has been under communist rule for a long time thus been separated from the western world you can feel that For us it comes across as very authentic for us it is high in the ranking of Asian countries to visit up to now! of course we still have to visit a lot but yes definitely recommended!
