A Travellerspoint blog

A lot of transport........

a boat, a bus, another boat, another bus and a sleeper train!

Early start for us on Monkey Island today...checkout was at a very unreasonable 7.15am! Yuck! But we were treated to pancakes for breakfast! Yum!

Most of the rest of the day was spent travelling back to Hanoi. This involved two boats and two buses! Needless to say it took a while. But for much of it we got to admire some more incredible scenery.

Once back in Hanoi we grabbed a speedy bite to eat at the Le Gecko restaurant down the road from our hotel (a restaurant introduced to us by Dan a few days ago!). Then it was straight to the station to get on the sleeper train to Hue. I think we were completely spoilt by our sleeper trains to and from Sapa; we miss the flat screen, the super soft bed and the plush furnishings of our deluxe cabin! But this sure beats a sleeper bus (I have vowed never to get one of those ever again)!!
