One of the legends tells that a great dragon who lived in the mountains made them.

Ha Long Bay, Vietnam Tourists come to this wonderful place because of its unique atmosphere of national color.

A water trip along the coast is going to be incredibly exciting, as you can see a lot of picturesque rocks and find mysterious caves.

There are quite large islands in the bay that are suitable for hiking. One of the largest and most comfortable is the island of Tuan Chau.
