Proudly claimed by locals as the eighth wonder of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Halong Bay (Ha Long Bay) is the most remarkable sight of natural beauty in all of Vietnam. Meaning "descending dragon," legend has it that the bay was created by a dragon who was sent by the gods to help protect Vietnam in times of war. After the fighting had ended, the dragon built his home in the bay.

Located in the Quang Ninh province, limestone karats rise majestically from emerald waters to form thousands of islets. Tranquil waters are perfect for cruising at leisure through breathtaking scenery - coral reefs, mangrove forests, sandy cove beaches and magical grottoes make this a truly must-see destination.

There are activities on the larger islands - kayaking, bicycling etc. and superb locally caught seafood, but many will be mesmerized just by the calming waters and the changing light across the bay that makes this such an unforgettable experience.

The best way to experience the beauty of Halong Bay is to take a cruise and spend time engaging in outdoor activities like kayaking, exploring the Sung Sot Cave (Cave of Surprises) or visiting nearby islets like Cat Ba.
