Some 1,600 islands, thick with greenery, form a maze of channels in the azure waters off northeastern Vietnam. Although people have lived in the region of Ha Long Bay for thousands of years, most of the islands remain uninhabited. But these coves and natural towers are rich with wildlife. For centuries, this spectacular seascape has inspired wonder.
The name Ha Long, Vietnamese for “descending dragon,” is reflected in a legend: Once, when the Viet people faced invasion, a dragon flew down from heaven to their defense. The creature sprayed not only fire, but also jewels that became the green archipelago.
The scientific explanation for the rock formations, known as karst, is also amazing. For millions of years, seashells and sediments fell to an ancient seafloor, forming solid rock. Tectonic activity raised the resulting limestone above water. Rainfall and rivers dissolved exposed rock, and carved valleys that flooded after the last ice age, creating this rare example of a karst field at sea.
Features include lakes and caves through the islands, and notches and tunnels where seawater has worn at the pillars' foundations. The fantastic landscape also continues into two adjacent national parks, on Cat Ba Island and Bai Tu Long Bay.
You can go kayaking, caving, or even take a ride in a seaplane to experience the grandeur of these enchanting tropical islands.

ভিয়েতনামের হা লং বে - CRUISE IN HA LONG BAY - WORLD HERITAGE SITE - VIETNAM
বিশ্বের সুন্দরতম স্থানগুলোর একটি হা লং বে। প্রতি বছর এর প্রাকৃতিক সৌন্দর্যের টানে অসংখ্য পর্যটক এই স্থানটিতে বেড়াতে আসেন। ‘হা লং বে’ অথবা ‘হা লং উপসাগরের’ অবস্থান দক্ষিণপূর্ব এশিয়ার দেশ ভিয়েতনামে।
বাংলাদেশে যখন প্রাকৃতিক সপ্তম আশ্চর্যের তালিকায় স্থান পেতে সুন্দরবন এবং কক্সবাজার সমুদ্র সৈকত নিয়ে ব্যাপক প্রচারণা চলছিলো তখনি সন্ধান মেলে ভিয়েতনামের হা লং বে’র। জয়ীও হয় হা লং বে।
হা লং বে’র সবুজ জলের প্রকৃতি সব ক্লান্তি মুছে দেয় দর্শনার্থীদের।
এটি ভিয়েতনামের অন্যতম একটি পর্যটন স্পট। ভিয়েতনাম রাজধানী শহর হ্যানয় থেকে ১৬৫ কিলোমিটার উত্তরপূর্ব দিকে কুয়াংনি প্রদেশে এর অবস্থান। সম্পূর্ণ দ্বীপের আয়তন প্রায় ১৫৫৩ বর্গকিলোমিটার। পুরো এলাকায় রয়েছে প্রায় ২০০০ ছোট বড় দ্বীপ। দ্বীপগুলো চুনাপাথরে তৈরি। টিলা-সংবলিত দ্বীপের অনেকগুলোই ভেতরে ফাঁপা। আবার অনেক দ্বীপের মধ্যে রয়েছে হ্রদ। দউ-বে দ্বীপে রয়েছে ছয়টি হ্রদ। এরই ফাঁকে ফাঁকে প্রায় ৪০০ বহুতল নৌযান ঘুরে বেড়াচ্ছে পর্যটকদের নিয়ে।
প্রায় ৫০ কোটি বছর আগে এসব চুনাপাথরের দ্বীপের সৃষ্টি হয়। এগুলোর মধ্যে অধিকাংশটিতে মানুষের কোন বসবাস নেই। এখানে বসবাসকারীদের অধিকাংশই মৎস্যজীবী বা জেলে। ১৯৯৪ সালে ‘হা লং বে’ কে ইউনেস্কো বিশ্ব ঐতিহ্যের মর্যাদা দেয়। সম্প্রতি আমরা ভিয়েতনাম বেড়াতে গিয়ে ২ দিন ১ রাতের ক্রুজে ভেসে বেড়িয়েছিলাম হা লং বের বুকে। সেই দিনগুলোর ভিডিও ফুটেজ নিয়ে আজকের এই ট্রাভেল ব্লগ।

Halong Bay Luxury Cruise | Signature Cruise
This Halong Bay Luxury Cruise was made possible by:
If you’ve never been to Halong Bay, you need to add taking a luxury cruise through Halong Bay to your bucket list! Halong Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for a good reason. It is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen! It’s filled with giant lime stone karsts that jut out of the water in every direction for miles.
The best way to experience the bay is by a luxury cruise. There are tons of cruise ship operators offering cruises through Halong Bay. The cruises range from cheap backpack boats to five start luxury cruise ships. Since visiting Halong Bay is most likely a once in a lifetime experience, we decided to splurge on a 5 star luxury cruise to ensure that we had the best experience possible!
We booked our cruise with Signature Cruise and we were elated with our experience. Seriously, we don’t have a bad thing to say about Signature Cruises, and that should mean a lot coming from me because when I splurge on an experience I am very critical. Also, the staff treated us like royalty! They made our experience even better.
Our luxurious cruise through Halong Bay started with an amazing lunch served while we were cruising to a floating fishing village. After arriving at the floating village we were rowed around the village in a row boat by one of the women who lived in the floating village. After our row boat ride was completed, we visited a pearl farm to learn how pearls are made. To be completely honest, this sounded kind of lame to me when I read it on the itinerary, but it was actually really interesting!
After leaving the pearl farm, we were taken back to the cruise ship. After an hour or so of relaxing and taking in the beautiful views of Halong Bay, we had a cooking class where we learned to make fresh spring rolls. After the cooking class we enjoyed happy hour with more beautiful views. After happy hour, a delicious five course dinner was served aboard the boat. After dinner I had the opportunity to try my hand at squid fishing. I got really lucky and managed to catch 10!

Overnight Cruise in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam
Today we sleepover at one of Vietnam's hottest destinations: Ha Long Bay. We take the overnight cruise and sail through its limestone islands. During the day our activities include kayaking, visiting the Thien Cung Cave, rowing by floating houses, and Vietnamese cooking lessons. In the evening we wine and dine, then go squid-fishing. No catch, but it's a way to mingle with other passengers! Watch the video to see the action unfold :)

DON'T GO to Halong Bay ???????? GO TO LAN HA BAY ????️
Why You Should Go To Lan Ha Bay NOT Halong Bay
In today's Vietnam travel vlog, I discuss why a prefer Lan Ha Bay over Ha Long Bay (Halong Bay). Most people have heard of Ha Long Bay but there is a better, lesser-known neighbor - Lan Ha Bay!
Ha Long Bay is a Unesco World Heritage site. When most people visit the Halong Bay area, they usually go on a 2 day, 1-night cruise. I don’t really think that’s enough time to truly appreciate this place & the tour boat companies pack so much into those 48 hours that you barely get to stop and really enjoy how beautiful the place is. So, I’d recommend spending a few more days in the Ha Long Bay area. I traveled with 6 of my friends and we decided to stay 5 days and even that didn’t seem like enough time to explore the area.
Like most, we made our way to the Ha Long area from Hanoi. For about $15 roundtrip, we took a luxury van to Ha Long City. But instead of jumping on a cruise boat and going directly to Ha Long Bay, we decided to spend a couple days on Tuan Chau Island. Tuan Chau Island is just off the coast of Ha Long City. There is a bridge from Ha Long City to Tuan Chau - so it’s just a short cab ride to get there from Halong City. We stayed at an inexpensive resort called La Paz Resort. It was $80 a night per room and we stayed two to a room. So it only cost $40 a night for each individual. We actually got pretty lucky. A huge storm rolled into Ha Long Bay and everyone's Halong Bay cruise was canceled for 2 days. Luckily for us, our Ha Long Bay cruise (Lan Ha Bay cruise) wasn’t for a few days and the resort had a great pool that we had a little fun in! The resort was also right on the beach and you could see the islands of Ha Long off in a distance even though it was pretty cloudy most of the time.
After relaxing a couple of days on Tuan Chau Island, we headed to Lan Ha Bay.
We took a water taxi to Cat Ba Island and then jumped on our boat in Lan Ha Bay. Like I mentioned before, I went with 7 of my buddies and 3 of us shared one cabin. There are many different options for cruise ships from big Halong Bay luxury cruise ships to smaller, more rustic Ha Long Bay cruise boats like the one we stayed on. I personally prefer the smaller boat, there were no more than 15 of us on the boat - so it felt less like a group tour type of thing.
Ok — so why Lan Ha Bay over the more famous Ha Long Bay? Ha Long Bay is beautiful, no doubt but it’s saturated with tourist. And that’s just not what I like. You can get the exact same scenery and beauty with far fewer tourist by going a few kilometers to the southwest to Lan Ha Bay.
Lan Ha Bay is located south of Ha Long Bay, just off the coast of Cat Ba Island. Ha Long Bay covers an area of a little over 1500 square kilometers and has around 1900 small islands. Lan Ha Bay is only 76 square kilometers and has around 400 small islands. While Lan Ha Bay is much smaller but there are more islands per square kilometer. Lan Ha Bay also feels bigger because there are far fewer boats than Ha Long Bay. There were many times I felt like we were the only boat in the entire bay. We were able to explore secluded beaches and coves with just my group and some local fisherman were hanging out.
If you're trying to figure out what to do in Vietnam, I hope this Vietnam travel vlog was helpful. My only regret was not getting more Halong Bay drone shots!

In this video, I have shared my experiences of Halong Bay & some budget tips for Halong Bay.
Halong Bay is in northern Vietnam, 170 km (105 mi) east of Hanoi. The bay is famous for its scenic ocean karst topography and is often included in lists of natural wonders of the world. Halong Bay is a bay located in the area of the Gulf of Tangka, north of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. It has an area of 1,500 square kilometres and has a coastline about 120 kilometres away from Hanoi. The name was based on the pronunciation in the Vietnam language Viet Nam Ha Long.
Ha Long Bay -- or the Bay of the Descending Dragon -- for many represents the pinnacle of their experience in Vietnam. easily one of the most popular destinations in the country, UNESCO World Heritage-listed Ha Long Bay is both mystical and magnificent, an incredible feat of nature that almost never fails to impress.
It’s not the cliffs themselves that make Ha Long Bay unique, but rather their sheer number. A huge bay, dotted with nearly 2,000 mostly uninhabited limestone cliffs, the breathtaking scenery is very similar to that of the Andaman coast of Thailand, Vang Vieng in Laos and Guilin in China.
There are many package tours to Cat Ba Island from Hanoi, Standards on these vary considerably: while comfortable - or even downright luxurious - boats, excellent food and knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides may be available, most are characterised by long and crowded bus journeys, tourist-oriented rip-off trips on boats so slow you could swim faster (to get you to buy more food and drink on board), hard-sell 'add-ons' like brief stops for kayaking, 'water cave' visits and other shady practices. So if you must visit Cat Ba, simply avoid the tourist port entirely and cross from Haiphong or another port.
