Halong Bay

Halong Bay Trips

Vietnam’s Halong Bay is one of many highlights of a journey through the country's magical landscape. The name means ‘where the dragon descends into the sea’, and legend has is that a dragon came down from the sky, spraying a thousand pearls into the water. From those pearls grew the staggering limestone peaks and crags of the bay, creating a natural fortress to protect Vietnam.

Most visitors join Halong Bay tours to enjoy the magnificent view and explore the islands by boat; navigating the maze of tight tunnels and limestone pillars is a quintessential Vietnam experience. Chinese-style junk boats glide across the bay, their dragon-fin sails drifting through the mangrove forests and coral reefs between the islands. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s an extraordinary place, and being here is like being lost in a legendary world of huge stone statues.
