Ha Long Bay listed among Vietnam's top 8 most beautiful places: Danish travel platform
The world heritage site of Ha Long Bay has been named as one of the eight most beautiful destinations in Vietnam by Bookmundi, a travel booking platform from Denmark.
Ha Long Bay, in the Gulf of Tonkin, includes some 1,600 islands and islets, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. Because of their precipitous nature, most of the islands are uninhabited and unaffected by a human presence. The site's outstanding scenic beauty is complemented by its great biological interest.
The list also includes Ninh Binh, Cu Lao Cham island, Sa Pa, Phong Nha-Ke Bang, Ba Be National Park, Cat Ba National Park, and Mui Ne.
Previously, Ha Long Bay was alo listed among 10 reasons why Vietnam is worth visiting by the New Zealand Herald daily.
"It's a cliche, but it's also a must – you will not be disappointed, so long as you plan with care. If you can afford it, book a berth on a small luxury boat and head east to the Bai Tu Long islands to beat the pack of day boats", noted the magazine.
It also advsies tourists worldwide to explore the floating village of Cua Van, swim off an uninhabited island and enjoy exceptional levels of service and food on board.
