Ha Long Bay: Is It Worth It?
At least a three and a half hour drive from Ha Noi - depending on traffic - tourists may think twice about investing a day or more to visit this UNESCO World Heritage site. But we are here to tell you it’s worth it for a number of reasons!
The karst landscape of Ha Long Bay is one of the best examples of marine invaded karsts in the world, and hence its UNESCO listing. Cruising limestone pillars, towers, islands and islets on an emerald sea is a truly breathtaking and memorable experience.
Caves and grottoes
The limestone of Ha Long Bay has ensured the formation of spectacular caves and peaceful grottoes. Caves snake deep into many of the islands, and grottoes support plant and animal life, some of it rare or endangered. Sung Sot (Surprise) Cave was one of the filming locations for King Kong: Skull Island.
History and culture
Ha Long Bay is home to a rich history, with three cultures inhabiting the area for tens of thousands of years. The floating villages that dot the Bay are what remains of the Ha Long culture, and visiting any one of these villages is stepping back in time.
Ha Long Bay is home to myriad plant and animal species and marine life because of the ecosystems the area supports. Many species have been listed as rare, and the local authorities work with tour operators to ensure conservation and preservation is balanced with tourism.
So much to do!
Whether you choose cruising or a stay on one of the islands like Cat Ba or Tuan Chau, Ha Long Bay has much to offer visitors. Spa treatments, hiking, fishing, cycling, swimming, diving sunbathing, shopping and squid fishing are just the tip of the iceberg. Ha Long Bay has something for everyone.
