Halong Bay is a group of islands of the Quan Ninh Province of northern Vietnam, about 110 miles easy of Hanoi. If you’re in the area, it’s considered a must see, even if only for a day trip. It’s a UNESCO world heritage site and has achieved a “wonders of the world” type of status.
That means a lot of people go there, and there are apparently hundreds of companies operating in the area to bring you to Ha Long Bay. It can be a bit crowded when you are visiting the caves, or boarding your boat. Having a good, engaging tour guide like Vin from Watitravel helped to make my trip to Halong Bay today special nonetheless. Here are my photos.
