HANOI – HALONG BAY TOUR FULL DAY TRIP

The Unesco World Natural Heritage

Ha Long Bay the northeastern province of Quang Ninh province includes some 1,600 islands and islets, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. Legend says Ha Long Bay was formed by a Mother Dragon and her children, sent by the Jade Emperor to protect the Viet from foreign invaders. The dragons flocked from Heaven, spitting out pearls which formed small islands and stopped the invaders and destroyed their ships. Mother Dragon and her children didn’t return to Heaven after the battle, but settled in the bay; the Mother Dragon forming Ha Long Bay and the children, Bai Tu Long.

Exploring the islands of Ha Long Bay almost makes this incredible story seem true. Weaving through the almost 2000 islands while sitting atop jade-green water is surreal to say the least, spiritual at most.

Halong Bay sea forever remain a bright green color, flows quietly, absorbed with time. Halong beautiful four seasons. In the spring, the lush vegetation shoots mike on limestone mountains. In summer, cool and clear, the sun shimmering particles fall down to the sea. Autumn, in the moonlit night, moonlit mountains inclined ball floating like gold leaf to earth.

With such special values, at the 18th Session of UNESCO’s Council of World Heritage held on 17 December 1994 in Thailand, Hạ Long Bay was officially placed on the list of the World Natural Heritage. In 2000, UNESCO recognized it as the World Heritage for the second time for its geographical and geomorphologic values. This confirms the global premier value of Hạ Long Bay.
