Known as Vietnam’s jewel in the crown, and the number –one tourist attraction in the north-east, Halong Bay has around two thousand islets rising from its emerald waters. Halong actually means 'descending dragon' and myth has it that an enormous beast is said to have entered into the sea, cutting the bay from the rocks as it trounced its way into the water.

Designated a world heritage site in 1994, this stunning landscape is home to over two thousand islands and the best way to make the most of its stunning beauty is to board a traditional junk boat or a luxury cruise ship to explore the inspiring scenery. Tour guides will point out the amazing stalagmites and stalactites which, with imagination, become animals, heroes, demons, and futuristic creatures. The cave spectacles on offer include, Hang Luon a flooded cave which leads to the hollow core in a doughnut shaped island: Hang Thien Cung is a hanging cave, with dripping stalactites, stumpy stalagmites, and solid rock pillars: Sung Sot Cave (Surprise Cave), is an enormous cave and one of the most visited in the Bay. Whilst on-board try some of the local delicacies and fresh seafood and if you take an overnight cruise, you’ll also be able to try your hand at kayaking, practise tai chi, or watch local cooking demonstrations.
