It was great. We were very lucky to have great weather and that it was not too cold. My highlights were the bamboo bridge, Kuang Si falls, Halong Bay and the sunset, squid jigging, swimming in the cold water. No one got sick which was good. I would do Halong Bay again but for longer and I would go back to Kuang Si to see the beautiful falls again. My parents made new friends and so did I. I didn't like the stories about the war and seeing poverty but I would recommend to go visit. What a great Christmas holiday and now I have to go. Thank you all for reading my blog. Stay connected. Happy New Year. Kaia
We went to a pearl farm and saw a floating village. The village was so depressing. They are born on the boat and they die on the boat. Their whole lives are spent on the boats. They are poor.
These are the oysters that have pearls in them. There are different types of oysters for different types of pearls.
It takes 2 years for the pearls to grow and then they go to the quality test and if they aren't perfect they make them into powder for cosmetics.

MERRY CHRISTMAS 🎅🎄🎁🎄🎁
We did not do much we just walked around Luang Prabang. We also played Uno in a cafe called Saffron Cafe which served yummy food. I had a hot chocolate. I got a present. It was a book with a monk sitting on the water with the reflection.
This is what it looks like inside.
Today we are going to leave LP and go to Hanoi. We leave at 17:10. So in the morning we went to a war museum. It was horrible because I hate wars. This was was secret. Millions of bombs were dropped onto Laos. These bombs still kill today.
We went in a cyclo (it is tuk tuk with a bike.) This is a cyclo. We toured the old quarter and the lake with them. It was fun. The shops are tiny and they have millions of the same stock but in all different colors. Streets sell the same thing. Christmas lights street. The sticky tape street. It's pretty weird because here in fusion they barely have any stock.
We are going to Halong Bay.We went in a minibus for 3hours.My mom told me it was amazing. After a long time we finally arrived it was beautiful. This is what the boat looked like.It's called the Stellar.
We got on and in our rooms. There are 3 floors on the boat the 1st floor had the deluxe cabins,the entrance and the reception.The 2nd floor (our floor) had the honeymoon suite and the premium cabins (our cabin). The 3rd floor was the restaurant and bar and on top there is the sundeck. This is the room that we were in but I had to crop the picture because Zoe had no underwear.
Here are some of the views.
The next day we went on a day boat. Luca, Zoe and Nim went kayaking.
I chill axed with my mum. Here is a picture of her.
