When I bought this FallenBrokenStreet hat for my trip to Vietnam, I didn’t realise it was almost the exact same style that the Vietnamese police and military wear. I’m used to wearing crazy hats on my travels, but this was on a whole other level. Everywhere we went in Hanoi, the hat was the centre of attention. So as much as I wanted to wear this hat on my adventures in the city, I had to pack it up until we hit the safe waters of Halong Bay.
This was our first day on board a traditional wooden junk called The Aphrodite, where we cruised for three days through the uninhabited islands of Halong Bay as part of a Topdeck trip. To find out more about Topdeck trips in Asia or to book, visit topdeck.travel
