Vịnh Hạ Long

Halong 201.jpg (37724 bytes) One of the natural wonders of Vietnam.  Some 3000 islands stretching over 1500sq km and reaching the Chinese border.
The name Ha Long means, Where The Dragon Descends Into The Sea.  Halong's distinctive scenery is said to have been created by the lashing tail of a rampaging dragon. Halong 187.jpg (39476 bytes)
Halong 192.jpg (39912 bytes) The Tarasque, a mythical creature, is said to inhabit these waters.  Vietnam's own Loch Ness Monster.
Strange rock sculptures jutting out of the tranquil waters make this a truly memorable and picturesque spot.  It must have  looked just like this for thousands of years. Halong 206.jpg (39856 bytes)
