What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Visiting Saigon and in particular the museum dedicated to the retelling of the 'American War' was a highlight. Generally speaking the food was fantastic throughout and definitely worth a mention.
I had thought that kayaking in Ha Long Bay would be the highlight but it was actually a bit of a let down in the end. There are just SO many tourist boats everywhere and the litter floating in the water etc. just completely take away from what I am sure was once an idyllic scene. I think the chance to see it 'as it was', is now unfortunately gone. Also, if you're looking forward to a day or even afternoon's kayaking after reading the trip notes, be warned that it's actually only about an hour or so.
