Halong Bay


We left Hanoi and drove through to Halong Bay where we spent the night on a boat. Halong Bay is UNESCO World Heritage site. The bay features thousands of limestone karsts and is truly spectacular. Ha Long Bay has an area of around 1,553 km2, including 1,960–2,000 islets, most of which are limestone. Ha Long means “descending dragon”.

In the afternoon we disembarked the boat and went to visit a grotto. Thien Cung grotto which is a big cave full of stalactites and stalagmites.

After the hike up to the cave it was time for cocktails on board and later dinner where we had to dress up as Vietnamese ancient Royalty.
