Halong Bay is a beautiful natural wonder in Northern Vietnam. The Bay is dotted with 1.600 limestone islands and islets. This extraordinary area was declared a UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE in 1994.
Why this place is called “Ha Long”? According to local legend, when Vietnam had just started to develop into the country, they had to fight against invaders. To assist the Vietnamese in defending their country, the gods sent a family of Dragons as protectors. This family of Dragons began spitting out jewels and jade. These jewels turned into the islands and islets dotting the bay, linking together to form a great wall against the invaders. Under magics, numerous rock mountains abruptly appeared on the sea, ahead of invaders’ships, the forward ships struck the rocks and each other. After winning the battle, the dragons were interested in peaceful sightseeing of the Earth, and then decided to live in this bay. The place where the mother dragon descended was named Ha Long.
