Thetraveljunkie.org – Ten years ago, I visited Halong Bay for the first time. Today, we bring you to see Halong Bay in Vietnam. For better or worse, tourism is quite a bit different these days than it was back then. Located in the Quang Ninh province of northern Vietnam, Halong Bay (also known as Ha Long Bay) is a unique natural landscape made up of nearly 2,000 limestone karsts and islets.
As popular destination for travel junkies in Vietnam, Halong Bay is a relatively easy four-hour drive from Hanoi.
A day spent on water is never a waste of time. Kayaking amidst the outstanding scenery of Halong Bay will be an unforgettable experience. It was SPECTACULAR. It was an incredible day.
The waters were calm and hardly any boats passed by where we were off the beach. Sun rays sparkled over clear water as the sun begins its descent. It was like paradise, nature at its absolute best.
Nature does not need us. We need nature.
Stay tuned for more of our adventures in Vietnam.
Happy Sustainable Travels!
