The Quang Ninh Province region
Ha Long Bay – a meaning of: “descending dragon bay” is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a popular travel destination, located in Quang Ninh province, Vietnam. Administratively, the bay belongs to Halong City, Cam Pha town, and part of Van Don district. The bay features thousands of limestone karsts and isles in various sizes and shapes. Ha Long Bay is a center of a larger zone which includes Bái Tử Long bay to the northeast, and Cat Ba islands to the southwest. These larger zones share similar geological, geographical, geomorphological, climate, and cultural characters.
Ha Long Bay has an area of around 1,553 km2, including 1,960–2,000 islets, most of which are limestone. The core of the bay has an area of 334 km2 with a high density of 775 islets. The limestone in this bay has gone through 500 million years of formation in different conditions and environments. The evolution of the karst in this bay has taken 20 million years under the impact of the tropical wet climate. The geo-diversity of the environment in the area has created biodiversity, including a tropical evergreen biosystem, oceanic and sea shore biosystem. Ha Long Bay is home to 14 endemic floral species and 60 endemic faunal species.
Historical research surveys have shown the presence of prehistorical human beings in this area tens of thousands years ago. The successive ancient cultures are the Soi Nhu culture around 18,000–7000 BC, the Cai Beo culture 7000–5000 BC and the Hạ Long culture 5,000–3,500 years ago. Hạ Long Bay also marked important events in the history of Vietnam with many artifacts found in Bai Tho (Poem) Mout, Dau Go Cave, Bai Chay.
500 years ago, Nguyen Trai praised the beauty of Hạ Long Bay in his verse Lo Nhap Van Don, in which he called it “rock wonder in the sky”. In 1962, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of North Vietnam listed Ha Long Bay in the National Relics and Landscapes publication. In 1994, the core zone of Ha Long Bay was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site according to criterion vii, and listed for a second time according to criterion viii.
Tuan Chau Island
Hon Gai or Hong Gai and Hongay also known as Ha Long, is the capital city of Quang Ninh province, Vietnam. The city mainly lies on Ha Long Bay. It is located at about 185 km northeast of Hanoi. The population in 2012 was 231,580.
The city's economy has recently switched from coal mining to tourism, due to the large amount of visitors drawn by the famous Hạ Long Islets every year. At present, Hạ Long is experiencing rapid growth not only in tourism sphere, but as a place upon the main road to southern China. In 2007 Vietnam-China Business Forum, a $400 million deal was signed to build a highway linking Hạ Long, Mong Cai and Quảng Ninh.
Hon Gai city is divided into two parts: East Ha Long and West Ha Long. The eastern part (“Hon Gai”), where most of the official buildings and industry are concentrated, is connected by bridge with the western part (“Bai Chay”), considered to be more of a tourism attraction.
There are several good quality hotels in Ha Long city and plenty of budget accommodation, two hospitals and several private medical centers. The biggest hotel in Vietnam is planned to be built on the bay, beginning from 2007.
The name Ha Long is derived from the Sino-Vietnamese, meaning “descending dragon.” For more about the origin of this name, see Ha Long Bay
Being a coastal city, having unique potentials of tourism and seaport due to its land lies along the shore of Ha Long Bay of 50 km, and is 160 km to the North-East from Ha Noi, 60km to the West from Hai Phong, 180 km to the East from Mong Cai international border gate, and bounded by the Tonkin Gulf to the South. Ha long has strategic location of economic development, security of the region and the country.
Culture and society
In the south of the city there is Bai Tho ('Poem') Mountain with its almost vertical seaward face, which was widely used by some famous local poets. The limestone peak is rich in bio-diversity and offers attractive views of the bay. There are also such places of interest as Cua Van Fishing Village, Hoang Gia Park, Ha Long Market, Bai Chay Trading Center, Quang Ninh Museum, Vietnam-Japan Cultural House, Children's Cultural House.
Ha Long city has an active Roman Catholic Church in its eastern part (“Hon Gai”) on the hill near the main post office, which holds the services on Sunday evenings and on Christian holidays.
The Homo has appeared on Halong Bay for a long time. Over the years, archaeologists, researchers concluded that during the application process of history, there were three cultures which called Soi Nhu, Ha Long and Cai Beo culture. It shows that the bay and surrounding areas were one of the cradles of mankind. Heartland of today's Halong City, formerly just a fishing village, called the Oyster Coast. By the beginning of the Nguyen Dynasty, it was renamed to Mau Le. The East wards of the present city, were earlier belonged to Hoanh Bo District.
In 1883, the French occupied the bay area, they carried out coal mining in the mines on the Gulf Coast. As on many islands there was lots of hemp so French called Ile des brouilles or a name translated from Hon Gai to Hon Gay, later renamed Hon Gai. According to the researchers, Hon Gai is calling deviation from the place of the French Red Sea at that time. The “H” in French is a silent sound. Be sure to read the later Hongay or Hon Gai. At that time, Hon Gai is an administrative unit under Quang Yen.
After the August Revolution in 1945, this township became the capital town of the huge Hong Gai mine area. Late in 1946, the French reconquest of Hon Gai. After Geneva Conference (1954), Hong Gai town was the capital of the Hong Quang special district. October 30, 1963, the government combined Hai Ninh province and Hong Quang special district to create Quang Ninh province, Hong Gai which became the capital of Quang Ninh, while expanding town to the east and west. Hong Gai town center provided coal for all industrial zones of North Vietnam. It also was the gateway to connect with China so it was the focus of the U.S. raiding fierce in war. Bai Chay Ferry (decommissioned in 2007, this was replaced by the Bai Chay Bridge) was the most important transportation hub, with American bombs destroyed many times, awarded Hero of the People's Armed Forces 3 times .
In December 27, 1993, the Government issued Decree No. 102/CP, Halong City was formally established on the basis of Hon Gai town.
