Today I’d like to invite you to go on a trip to Vietnam to see some exotic fruit carvings.
My nephew Jesse and his fiancee were recently traveled to Vietnam and had some pictures of amazing fruit carvings to show me.
Although I’m sure that seeing fruit carvings wasn’t the main high point of their trip, I’m glad they thought of me!
Actually, it was the 3 day “junk boat” tour through Halong Bay that was the real highlight.
Take a look at their photos and go on a mini-vacation without having to leave your home!
Imagine being lead through a limestone cave in Vietnam to a sit down gourmet dinner, complete with exotic fruit carvings
Halong Bay in Vietnam is known for its almost 2000 beautiful limestone islands. My nephew and his fiancé were able to experience this natural wonder, up close and personal, on a 3 day “junk boat” cruise.
What incredible scenery! They were able to tour the interior of some the limestone caves as well.
What do you think it would be like to go inside one of those caves?
Let’s take a look!
What came next was a total surprise to my nephew Jesse. Jesse’s fiancee had planned the boat tour section of their trip to Vietnam and did not reveal her entire plan.
Their junk boat anchored at one of the limestone islands and their tour group were lead on a twilight a walk. They were guided into a cave with a path lined with lighted candles.
Once inside the dramatically lit cave, they were treated to a sit down meal, complete with servers, table settings and exotic fruit carvings!
Imagine being inside this limestone cave, beautifully lit and prepared for a gourmet dinner. Doesn’t this sound like a great thing to do? I want to go there!

Isn’t that amazing? Look at the all the fine detail that was put into the carving to make the dragon come alive.

What an experience! I was so glad to hear that Jesse and his fiancee had a wonderful time in Vietnam. After seeing their photos, I can understand why!
Do you think a tour though limestone caves in Vietnam, complete with a candle lit dinner served with exotic fruit carvings, would be your ideal vacation?
I hope you enjoyed our little escape to Vietnam. Seeing my nephew’s photos makes me want to book a flight there!
The scenery was beautiful and oh my, I was impressed with those fruit carvings. I really enjoy seeing food art in places that are far from home for me. I find it so inspiring.
