Ha Long Bay, in the Gulf of Tonkin, includes some 1,600 islands and islets, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. Because of their precipitous nature, most of the islands are uninhabited and unaffected by a human presence. The site's outstanding scenic beauty is complemented by its great biological interest.The outstanding value of the property is centered around the drowned limestone karst landforms, displaying spectacular pillars with a variety of coastal erosional features such as arches and caves which form a majestic natural scenery. The repeated regression and transgression of the sea on the limestone karst over geological time has produced a mature landscape of clusters of conical peaks and isolated towers which were modified by sea invasion, adding an extra elemant to the process of lateral undercutting of the limstone towers and islands.

Halong Bay should be high in your activity list if you are visiting Hanoi but you should give it at least a day, preferably an overnight stay. I took the seaplane and stayed with Paradise Cruise. Some people do day trips. The view is magnificent!

Halong Bay was truly spectacular to see via a lovely junk cruise boat, which was almost not on due to the weather being bad the morning. Luckily the weather changed and we were able to see the most popular of the... More

With marvelous rocks and caverns, you can enjoy a long bot ride and to argue whether the famous rock looks like fighters or kissers. Birds and monkeys, trees and stalactite cave. Good trip for family and lovers alike.

A must see to any to Vietnam. Do at least either a 2 or 3 days tour on an overnight boat. It take too much time for transfer. Enjoy our trip very much!

It was so beautiful and... More

We an afternoon, an evening and then the following morning on Dragon Legend, cruising on Halong Bay. It was a beautiful and peaceful time. With the 3000 small islands and outcroppings, it is breathtaking. We also went kayaking, which was a lot of fun. I highly recommend this type of trip.
