Halong Bay

Halong Bay

The Halong Bay in the Gulf of Tonkin is a must place to visit if you are traveling to Vietnam. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Quảng Ninh Province. The bay has some 2,000 islands and islets which are mostly limestone. The limestone in this bay has gone through 500 million years of formation. In literal translation, Halong Bay in Vietnamese means descending dragon bay. 

It’s worth to stay overnight on a junk boat in Halong Bay. The magnificent view on the top deck is something not to be missed especially during sunset and sunrise.
