Halong Bay

Quang Ninh Province, Vietnam

Known by the Vietnamese as Descending Dragon Bay, the mystical realm of Halong Bay has to be seen to be understood. Scattered among nearly 2,000 remarkable limestone islets, the bay feels like a supernatural wonder built from the imagination of a Hollywood set designer. But it’s breathtakingly real, and exotic charter boats, seen here, ensure your escape will be unforgettable.
