Halong Bay

October 17th, 2008 | Posted by Davey in 06-Vietnam | UNESCO World Heritage Sites - (3 Comments)

Majestic, mysterious and inspiring – words alone cannot do justice to the natural wonder that is Halong Bay.  3,000 or more incredible islands rising from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin – a vision of breathtaking beauty. In 1994 it was designated a World Heritage site and is soon to be listed (currently in second place) as one of the 7 new wonders of nature.

We took a 3–day two night excursion and it was worth ever cent of the $54 (each), that included the boat (1 night), meals and other excursions to the caves, Cat Ba island (1 night) and hiking in the Cat Ba National Park.

We’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, it really was a fantastic experience.  You can see many more pictures here.
