Second day we went on a 3 hour cruise to the island of Quan Lan in Bai Tu Long bay, followed by a 12km bike on some rusty as old bikes. For some reason we stopped off at a plastic strewn for about an hour and went for a swim, meaning we still had a 30min bike ride over rocky terrain through the dark!
Reminded me of back in the day but some of the other people were not so impressed, 2 of the americans actually stopped (stranding us for 30min while the guide went to search for them)
We finally arrived at our home-stay about 8:30 and feasted on some truly epic fried spring rolls!
Next day we explored a fish market and the village before grabbing a Tuk Tuk back to the boat and off for the final cruise back to the mainland.
