Go kayaking and sunbathing amongst the breathtaking nature of Halong Bay. Visit the natural caves, explore a local fishing village and take part in a Vietnamese cooking class. Halong Bay was first listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994, in recognition of its outstanding, universal aesthetic value. In 2000 the World Heritage Committee additionally recognized Ha Long Bay for its outstanding geological and geomorphological value. Hence Ha Long Bay is twice granted World Heritage status for a reason: It is really that picturesque. The trademark emerald green water and 3,000 islands of towering limestone are worth your visit.

Frequently Asked Questions
I have been fortunate enough to see Cat Ba Island, and Cat Ba Village a few times before, and have loved my visits there to experience Vietnamese rural small town life, which is an interesting contrast to Hanoi. The boat is truly spectacular, and obviously, Halong (and especially its lesser known but much more beautiful cousin, Lan Ha) deserve every bit of their spot on the Natural Wonders of the World list.
