Description

Halong Bay, Vietnam has no need for museums, because a stay there is like living in an art museum. It's a visual work of art. From the stone island bays to Dragon Island, a piece of land that resembles a dragon flying over the glistening water. In fact, most of Halong Bay is formed like the constellations, mystically and naturally forming shapes you never believed possible. The best thing to do in Halong Bay is simply to explore, to cover as much of this paradise as possible. And when you get a bit tired, sprawling white sand beaches, shady trees, a warm sun and a cool breeze await you at any one of the pristine beaches.
