Ha Long City is the main gateway to Ha LongBay. Though the city enjoys a stunning position on the cusp of Ha Long Bay, developers have not been kind to it, and high-rise hotels dot the shoreline. However, the majority of food, accommodation and other Ha Long Bay services are found here.

Majestic and mysterious, inspiring and imperious: words alone cannot do justice to the natural wonder that is Halong Bay- means "Bay of Descending Dragons" . Imagine 3000 or more incredible islands rising from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin and you have a vision of breathtaking beauty. Halong Bay is pure art, a priceless collection of unfinished sculptures hewn from the hand of nature.

Halong Bay has thousands of spectacular limestone islands grottoes created by wind and waves have sparsely forested slopes ringing with birdsong, and rock rising from tranquil turquoise waters.

You can explore hidden beauty underwater with thousands of splendid coral such as sun mushroom coral, leather coral, magnificent stag horn coral, compact coral and fish like sergeant major fish, Clark’s anemone fish... It’s suitable to do some activities: hiking on fishing, kayaking, swimming, sunbathing, diving on Cat Co One, Cat Co Two and Cat Co Three, exploring some mystery caves in Cat Ba National Park, trekking and cycling on Cat Ba Island…

If you want to stay with local people, experience fishing, living on floating houses and act as residents, some communities offer reasonably priced home-stays to visitors, too.

The snacks and water bottles, alcohols cigarettes are neatly packed into the small boats – we called floating convenience stores. Never seen anything like this before. Very unique and nice. If you want to buy some traditional Vietnamese souvenirs, the night market in the town of Bai Chay is for you.

On December 12, 2000, Halong Bay was recognized as world natural heritage for the second time based on its geological value at the 24th meeting of the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO in Cairns, Australia.
There are a lot of things to talk about Ha Long Bay, but I can’t talk everything by writing. If you want to enjoy completely beauty in Ha Long Bay, you should come to it.
