Hanoi to Ha Long Bay


Ha Long is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Vietnam. The reason why Ha Long bay is so popular is the 1,969 limestone island islands. These islands vary in size and shape. Some of the islands are small, with sheer faces and uninhabitable. Other islands, such as Qan Lan and Bo Han, have sizeable human settlements and places where foreign visitors can stay overnight. Other islands, such as Cat Ba, have exotic flora and fauna and many feature caves and grottoes which you can visit. Cruise and tours around these islands are numerous and this beautiful area is also big business for tour companies. At its worst visitors can find that the commercialisation of Ha Long bay detracts from its natural beauty.
