HALONG BAY NATURAL WONDER

HALONG BAY NATURAL WONDER

Halong Bay natural wonder (Vịnh Hạ Long) located in the North in Quang Ninh Province of Vietnam and must-visit travel destination. Halong Bay is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, offers thousands of limestone karsts and isles in various shapes and sizes. Halong Bay includes Bai Tu Long Bay to the northeast, and Cat Ba Island to the southwest. Designated a Unesco world heritage site more than 20 years ago, the Halong Bay natural wonder is one of Vietnam’s most popular tourist attractions. It is only recently though, that a small number of cruise boats have ventured further east into the Gulf of Tonkin, to the outer rocky flanks of Bai Tu Long. The legend says the dragon, sent by the Jade Emperor, descended from heaven into the sea. The towering outcrops of Halong Bay are a spot where the dragon descends to the sea and sprayed a thousand pearls from its mouth. From these cascading pearls, the 1,600 shaggy limestone stacks of Halong Bay emerged, a huge curvature of jumbled karst fortress designed to protect Vietnam from invaders in the Gulf of Tonkin.

Here are some of the best beaches in Vietnam to consider. A good tour operator will help you with your selections, whether you want to a dedicated Vietnam beach holiday or beach break at the end of a busy trip. Bai Chay beach is probably the best beach option for those heading east from Ha Noi.

HALONG BAY HAS 4 DIFFERENT SEASONS

Halong Bay has 4 different seasons and therefore available for visit almost at any time throughout the year. The climate in the north limits the safe time for a Vietnam beach holiday to the height of summer. However, Halong Bay is such a stunning place that it attracts tourists all year round. If the sun shines, you can lie on a beach if you like though there is so much else to see and do. Bai Chay beach is probably the best beach option for those heading east from Hanoi. The town of Bai Chay, along with Hong Gai, together are officially referred to as Halong City. Beach is huge and best for those who like to relax & enjoy the views. In July and August is a season for typhoons.
