Ha Long Bay, located 165 km from Hanoi, is Vietnam’s must-visit attraction. Come to Ha Long Bay for a day to discover the beauty of thousands of limestone islands with many shapes carrying the magical legendary story.
Ha Long Bay is a surreal landscape of 1,600 islands and islets began forming millions of years ago. A spectacular assortment of jungle-covered pillars, secluded bays, and sandy beaches look like something out of a mythical fairy-tale. The best way to experience the feeling of living within this ancient heritage site is to glide across its smooth waters on a cruise.
On board, you have a constantly moving panorama on all sides. Every few metres a new scene is revealed: massive rock faces, fluttering Vietnamese flags, tiny fishing boats, little inlets, jungled outcrops, swooping brown eagles, and karsts as far as the eye can see. As you move towards, the views are magnificent and your imagination drifts far from the stressors of everyday life.
The bay water is calm and still, making it safe, easy, and enjoyable to go kayaking between a selection of islands and karsts. Exploring the fascinating beauty of caves by bamboo boat is also a top-notch choice. Don’t forget to climb up to Titop Peak for a panoramic view of the bay and best-ever photos before heading back to the cruise for relaxing activities on deck.
Some tourists said that Ha Long Bay must be a wonder made by magic and time. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994, this natural wonder of the world has since become one of the most popular tourist attractions in Vietnam and the world also.
