Halong Bay Hạ Long Bay, in northeast Vietnam, is known for its emerald waters and thousands of towering limestone islands topped by rainforests. Junk boat tours and sea kayak expeditions take visitors past islands named for their shapes, including Stone Dog and Teapot islets. The region is popular for scuba diving, rock climbing and hiking, particularly in mountainous Cát Bà National Park.
Vinpearl Resort & Spa Ha Long
Vinpearl Resort & Spa Ha Long is the first and largest 5-star resort in North Vietnam. Located on a private island by the white sands of Bai Chay, the resort offers spectacular 360° views of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The bow-shaped design is reminiscent of the Opera House in the French city of Rennes, embracing the glorious island setting with an invitingly relaxing contemporary beachfront stay with extraordinary facilities.
Sky path brothers.
These six days in Ha Giang thave been some of the best in Vietnam. We visited China, rode the sky path and motorcycled epic roads and trails and Jurassic park like landscapes, ate ban me, drank copious amounts of coffee and soaked up tribe life in them hillz, even finding time for rice wine, beers, karaoke and more than a few massages. Here he is @wiseguy_smiley the sky path trailblazer!
Halong Bay is located in northern Vietnam and is just a few hours outside of Hanoi. It is made up of over 1,600 karsts, or limestone islets. The islets resemble the scaled back of a dragon, giving the bay its name. Ha Long literally translates to “descending dragons”.
I highly recommend taking an overnight cruise on a junk boat. I went with Vega Travel and had a great time. I got to kayak around the bay and climb to the top of Ti Top Island for an amazing view. I was also able to experience both an incredible sunset and sunrise on the water.
