Beautiful natural wonder, Ha Long Bay, located at 170 km from Hanoi, in northern Vietnam near the Chinese border, is popular for its fascinating limestone Karst scenery with thousands islands rising from the clear emerald water of the Bac Bo Gulf, the Gulf of Tonkin, topped by rainforests. “Halong” in Vietnamese means “the dragon descending to the sea” and is the spotlight of any Vietnam trip.
Designated a World Heritage Site in 1994, for many tourists, Ha Long Bay is like something right out of a movie, in fact has indeed featured in endless movies such as Pan in 2015, Kong: Skull Island in 2017 and many others.
The best way to get to Ha Long City is by car, minibus or bus from Hanoi and the best way to experience this landscape is by boat. These cruises typically include English-speaking guides, hotel transfers, and entrance fees, meals, and on-board entertainment.
