Ha Long Bay is one of the most beautiful natural wonders in the world. The bay has over 1600 small tropical forest covered islands rising from the calm emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin.
Sailing through the labyrinth of uniquely shaped islands makes for an unforgettable memory. Many of the islands are close together appearing to be layered one behind another. This creates an almost continually changing view from the time you enter the bay until you leave.
I recommend taking a two day tour of the bay because it will allow you to spend the night on a boat in the middle of the bay. Seeing the sun set at night and rise in the morning is something that you don’t want to miss because the sunrises and sunsets through the gaps of the islands are some of the most beautiful that I have seen. It truly will be one of those “wow” moments of your life!
Experiencing the natural beauty of Ha Long Bay is spectacular but there are some other sites in Ha Long Bay that I will feature in future my posts shown below.
