Vietnam Travel – Halong Bay

Guest post from Katrina Manalo of Me & My Chucks.

I’m marking Halong Bay as the most scenic place I have ever visited in Vietnam. Although, I only toured the bay for 2 days and 1 night, every moment spent there was truly majestic and breathtaking.

Indeed Halong Bay deserves to belong to the 7 Wonders of the World for having 3,000 or more limestone karsts and isles in various sizes and shapes.

Awarded by Unesco as one of the World’s Heritage Site, Halong Bay will definitely bring you closer to nature as you feast your eyes to these islands that nature molded itself.

Hang Sung Sot Cave

Aside from the rock formations and thousands of islands in Halong Bay, the caves in the bay are also worth visiting. I ended up going inside this cave called Hang Sung Sot.  This itinerary is part of the package we purchased from ODC travel.

Halong Bay Sunset

Another amazing moment you can have in Halong Bay is a magnificent view of the sunset. It was my first time to see such a sunset, the color varies as the sun disappears, it’s like a wave of colors changing from hue to hue… indeed one of the most magical events I ever experienced while travelling.
