Ha Long Bay, translating to "dragons descending into the sea", is a collection of over 1600 islands and islets. This seascape is famous for its emerald waters and its towering limestone mountains. The breath-taking views of the limestone mountains complementing the waters make the place a major tourist attraction. This "World of water wonders" is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. One can get in comfortably from different place around the island. Getting around the archipelago, however, is only by boat.
