Location description from owner

The Quang Ninh Province region

Northern Vietnam - it's full of culture. Historically, and to this day, it has been significantly poorer than the southern part of the country. Cultural and political differences remain strong - the language is pronounced differently in some ways, and there's definitely a more authoritarian feel in the cities.

The largest city in northern Vietnam is the capital of Hanoi, and it's the only attractive one. But there are numerous other sites, such as Ha Long Bay, the mountain resort of Sapa, and the historical battlefield of Dien Bien Phu.

Cities:

Cao Bang

Dong Hoi

Haiphong

Hanoi

Lao Cai

Lang Son

Ninh Binh

Vinh

Lai Chau

Hoa Binh

Other destinations:

Bac Ha - hilltribe markets near the Chinese border

Co To Island

Cuc Phuong National Park

Dien Bien Phu - site of the French defeat in 1954

Dong Dang - on the border with China

Ha Long Bay - a world-famous natural wonder

Sapa - popular site for visiting indigenous tribes

Tam Coc - Ha Long Bay-like karst scenery along the river

Bac Giang - Pristine natural forest with ecotourism stays and visits

Halong Bay

"Ha Long" means "Bay of Descending Dragons", though prior to the 19th century this name was not recorded in any document or archive. When mentioning the present-day Quang Ninh Sea or Ha Long Bay, old historical books often referred to them by the names of An Bang, Luc Thuy or Van Don. Not until the late 19th century did the name of Ha Long Bay appear on a French Marine Map. The Hai Phong News, a French newspaper of the time, had an article, Dragon appears on Ha Long Bay, reporting the following story: In 1898 a sub-lieutenant named Lagredin, captaining the Avalanse reported seeing a huge sea snake on Ha Long Bay. This was also witnessed by many of the crews. Thus emerged the European image of the Asian dragon. Whether this appearance of a strange animal looking like a dragon resulted the name of Ha Long Bay is not known.

The Ha Long Bay archipelago is made up of 1969 islands, both settled and uninhabited. These can be accessed from various ports, though in the special case of Cat Ba you can also arrive either by car, motorbike or bus (via Haiphong) or combined bus/boat (from Hanoi via Halong City).

This unique UNESCO World Heritage Site is a popular place for tourists and it is good to know that large parts of Ha Long Bay are officially protected from development. The islands vary greatly in size and shape as well as structure.

Visitors might want to allow a few days to explore this magical bay as its attractions are extremely numerous.
