Vietnam - Halong Bay

Halong Bay is one of the most beautiful places I have been given to see. I think that here I'll mainly let the photos speak for themselves.

We went on a 3-day 2-night trip, the first was spent on a junk like the one below, the second night was spent on the island of Cat Ba.

Ha Long Bay junk.

In the bay are about 3000 karst islands. Halong actually means 'where the dragon descends into the sea', and legend has it that this is how the bay was created.
