One hundred and seventy kilometers from Hanoi, in northeastern Vietnam,Halong Bay is a UNESCO World Natural Heritage website and undoubtedly 1 of the most gorgeous locations on earth.
The bay is a magical blend of land and sea with thousands of limestone islands and islets in a myriad of shapes and sizes. A lot of the islands include caves and grottos, some hidden away for millions of years, but now accessible for our lucky guests to explore and marvel at their immensity and spectacular displays of stalactites and stalagmites. The bay is bordered on the south and southeast by the Gulf of Tonkin, on the north by China and on the west and southwest by Cat Ba Island and encompasses 1553 square kilometers.
