Its natural beauty makes it one of Vietnam’s No.1 tourist sites, according to Insider. The bay is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The best way to see Ha Long’s awe-inspiring limestone towers is by boat. In fact, many tourists stay overnight on a boat in the bay.

These larger zones share  similar geological, geographical, geomorphological, climate and cultural characteristics.
