Ha Long Bay

Ha Long Bay and the Cat Bal Islands are spectacularly scenic. Lot’s cat paw-looking islands dotting the sea, and wooden fishing boats anchored near quite isolated islands. You can take this trip from¬†Hanoi, which is what I’d done. Here’s what UNESCO has to say about Ha Long Bay:

Ha Long Bay, in the Gulf of Tonkin, includes some 1,600 islands and islets, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. Because of their precipitous nature, most of the islands are uninhabited and unaffected by a human presence. The site’s outstanding scenic beauty is complemented by its great biological interest.
