A must for any visitor to Vietnam. Ha Long Bay is a unique and fascinating World Heritage Site where over 3000limestone rocks (karsts) explode out of the sea in mysterious shapes and sizes hiding magnificent caves, hidden lagoons and beautiful beaches. Legends of the area talk of Dragons descending from heaven to earth to help the Viet people to defend their homeland against their enemies. The Dragons stayed on earth in the form of the karsts. Whether of mythical, naturalist or geological interest to you, the area offers an experience that you will not match anywhere in the world. Ha Long Bay has recently been acknowledged as being one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World...and with good reason!!
Getting there: Ha Long Bay is about 4 hours drive from Ha Noi. Once on your boat, you can begin to appreciate the awesome beauty of the Bay.
