Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Halong Bay Vietnam

Halong Bay is perhaps the most popular tourist destination in Vietnam. This is with good reason as the Karst topography creates thousands of islands that thrust out of the sea into the waiting camera lens and beckons hundreds of photos. Boat tours are easy to find in Hanoi and relatively inexpensive. Meals are included and the tour includes a night or two on a boat, which saves hotel money. A visit to an enormous cave and kayaking round out the list of activities. If you dislike tours, this is the one you have to do in Vietnam.

Stay tuned,


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
