Halong Bay


Inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994, Halong Bay is a collection of over 1,600 mostly uninhabited islands and islets located 165km (102mi) east of Hanoi. Literally “Where the dragon descends into the sea” in Vietnamese, Halong Bay’s regal limestone pillars rise from its emerald waters in breathtaking formations. Some of the islands are hollow and house mystical cave systems and sea lakes, just begging to be explored by kayak or swimming. Scenic cruises are the best way to explore this spectacular seascape complemented by rich biodiversity.
