The best kinds of friends are the ones who take you to the wilderness and can sit silently and enjoy the natural sounds of the inside of a cave (and goats) rather than make you feel that conversation is always necessary. It turned out the goats were actually being rescued from inside the cave while were there, and we even got to assist them on leading one of the goats out of the reserve.
Taking a boat ride through the scenic waters of Trang An has been one of the most beautiful things we have done in Southeast Asia. Named a UNESCO world heritage site in 2014 tourist can now hire a guide and a small row boat and go on a 3 hour long cruise. We were lucky enough to be one of the last boats of the day which meant getting to watch the sunset from the water.
Freeport Stop 2: Krape Park
This place was amazing. Caves, a scenic overlook with a huge waterfall, bridges. Could have easily spent the day exploring. Sadly the massive waterfall is man made and was not running so I will have to stop back.
