Ha Long Bay


About Ha Long Bay
Imagine over 2000 limestone islands rising from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin and you have a vision of breathtaking beauty. Ha Long Bay translates as ‘the bay that dragon descends into’, and locals' legend claims the islands of Ha Long Bay were created by a great dragon from the mountains. Designated a World Heritage site in 1994 and World Nature Wonder in 2011, this mystical landscape of limestone islets is a Must for all of tourists travelling to Vietnam. The bay’s immense numbers of islands are dotted with wind- and wave-eroded grottoes, and their sparsely forested slopes ring with birdsong.
To have the best time in Ha Long Bay, you should take a tour on Ha Long Bay Cruises. Beyond a boat cruise, visitors will come to explore the caves, kayaking or rowing boat activities, visiting floating fishing village and of course plenty of time to relax within breathtaking scenery of the bay. 

When to go?
It is the fact that Ha Long Bay is magical and beautiful in any kinds of weather. However the best time to visit is October to January. From May to September is also good since it is hot and clear sky for very good views. Tropical heavy rains, however, are frequent this period. February to April is often cool and drizzly, and the ensuing fog can make visibility low, but also adds an ethereal air. 

How to get there?
Halong bay is about 175km east from Hanoi city and car is the best way to get there (The drive takes 3.5 hour). All the tours to Ha Long bay include coach transfer. If you want a private comfortable drive, you can book private cars easily from Mercury Travel.
