Junk boats in Halong Bay - Vietnam

    Newer Older

    The chinese-style junk is an unique art work cruising on the emerald water of the World Natural Heritage of Halong Bay.

    Ha Long Bay is one of the world’s natural wonders and is the most beautiful tourist destination of Vietnam.
    Ha Long Bay features more than one thousand awesome limestone karsts and islands of various sizes and shapes along the 120-km coastline of Bai Chay Beach.
    Its waters are host to a great ersity of ecosystems including offshore coral reefs, freshwater swamp forests, mangrove forests, small freshwater lakes, and sandy beaches.
    The folk tale has it that the dragons descended from heaven to help locals by spitting jewels and jade to the sea, forming a natural fortress against invaders; these precious stones are represented by the lush green outcrops.

      This is a place that I'd love to go to! I was in Vietnam, but during the 90's..I saw a painted image from a fiction novel and after research, I found this site from N. Vietnam! Thank you for posting!
