Halong Bay never fails to amaze visitors by its labyrinth of limestone islands dotting the shimmering Gulf of Tonkin. These same islands witnessed years of history: from flourishing human settlements in 16000 BC, to the sea-faring people of Cai Beo culture in 3000 BC and a number of naval battles that defined the nation’s history. The area plays hosts to a diverse ecosystem with abundant wildlife, including 7 species endemic to the area. Explore the caves, experience its flora and fauna on a kayak, laze on one of its fine sand beaches, and a whole lot of activities to make your visit a truly memorable one.
