After spending a week in the steamy city of Hanoi, I was more than ready to hit the coast for some bikini time. For a two week trip I’d packed 14 bikinis (I usually allow for two bikinis a day), which was actually quite a lot considering most of our time in South East Asia was spent in cities and villages.
We arrived in Halong Bay and boarded The Aphrodite – a traditional junk that was our home for the next three picturesque days. As soon as I checked out my room, I chose this Triangl bikini and Warriors of the Divine kimono and headed to the deck for sunshine, views and piña coladas.
While I’ve always loved Triangl’s signature bright coloured bikinis, I was really excited to see them branch out with this collection and use a more neutral pallet with bohemian touches like crochet. I paired this bikini with a beautiful hand-made kimono by Indonesian-based label Warriors of the Divine. The angel wings on the back of this kimono are hand-drawn, hand-waxed, hand-painted using ancient batik practices, and perfect for bikini life.
We were in Halong Bay filming an exciting web series for Topdeck Travel. Watch it here.
