➤ Halong Bay is one of Vietnam's most stunning attractions.

The name translates to "where the dragon descends," and, according to local legend, the bay's islands were formed when a dragon charged from the mountains towards the coast. Its tail carved out valleys and crevasses until the dragon hit the water, flooding the area and leaving nothing but peaks visible.
