I slept very well that night; the room wasn’t so cold compared to the outside temperature. And i woke up fresh in the morning, could not wait to try the breakfast menu.
The food was delicious, and they offered so many kinds of food. The breakfast was just the red-herring from my detained passion to lead the heart of this journey… Halong Bay (Even now when I say it, I can still feel a sweep of the strong wind, invites me to grasp the every hilly jade of the bay). Anyway, my buddy trip were waking up late, I had to go ahead to the meeting point first, avoiding the tour group leaving us behind. And It wasn’t too long till they caught us up.

It was only late at night when we made a decision to go to the Catba Island using public transportation (instead of our hotel’s tour package). As advised by our bible, we can buy 1 ticket to the Catba Island which includes bus-boat-bus travel. At first I felt reluctant with the choice *please don’t blame me*. I imagined our-beloved-country public bus & boat. Not to mention unknown (I’m not talking about positive, surprising event) thing we might discover during the trip. Anyhow, that was the best choice we ever made. Thanks for Mr. S for his sturdy desire (perhaps he got that exploring & challenging sense from hours flying around the world) for making that happen. But yes, we asked several travel agents the possibility of using the public transport, before we were convinced about it.
