What We Love About Halong

Look no further than Halong city to enter the magical scenery of Halong Bay. Flocked by travelers from all over the world, Halong Bay is marked by sparkling emerald and turquoise waters, stretching as far as the eye can see! Take a quintessential cruise to see some of the bay's 1,600 limestone islands. The incredible jungle vegetation, fine-sand beaches, and natural caves and grottoes scattered along the bay are a definite feast for the eyes. Part of the charm of Halong Bay is the culture it's embedded in, which you'll learn along the way during your sightseeing adventure. For starters: Halong means 'descending dragon'. Popular legends say that a majestic dragon and her children descended from Heaven to defend and protect the people, and stayed on earth to eventually become the bay and its surrounds. Immerse yourself in a world and culture vastly different from that of busy cities, and enjoy a trip that's relaxing and wonderful for the soul.
