The first night of sleep on the boat has been good and I’m looking forward to breakfast. The shower is pretty amazing too. A nice hot shower in a proper shower cubicle with slate floor on a junk. I am liking this.
We have to change to a day boat and go off for a few activities. We don’t even get time to say goodbye to the people who are only on the 2 day trip. I get on the day boat and the captain offers me a small cup of hot liquid that looks like green. tea. I take a sip. It isn’t green tea. I am still not sure what it is so I abandon the cup when I get the chance as the other board the boat.
We go off to a beach with a great lookout point up about 400 steps. Sadly the lookout isn’t as good for us as it’s still a bit misty. Then we head off to another area for some kayaking. It’s an odd number so I get my own kayak. We are led by a French couple we picked up from another boat on the understanding that they have done this. It turns out they haven’t, but the route isn’t tough. we go through some caves and get some amazing sights. We go through the night and day caves. In the rainforest above there are monkeys jumping between trees. I am too blindy to see them, but I can hear them.
We arrive back at out day boat and enjoy a lovely lunch. Our guide for the day looks like a Vietnamese Elvis. We relax on the top deck on the deck chairs and look at all of the boats and rock formations in the mist. Our last stop of the day is at another lookout point. Elvis tells us that it’s 121 steps. It is more.
I’ve been getting to know the people who have stayed both nights. A couple from England Niall and Jo, and 2 friends from Australia Kirsten and Roweena. When we finally return to our main AClass boat we find lots of new people on-board, they are loud and not very friendly so we decide to grab a table for 5 and keep ourselves to ourselves.
Later we head to the upper deck and relax at a table listening to music and drinking some cheaper drink that Niall and Jo have smuggled on-board.
Finally we all decide to get some sleep ready for the final day.
