Hayley says:
"Halong Bay or literally Decending Dragon Bay has some interesting history. Legend has it that long ago when the Vietnamese were fighting off the Chinese invadors God sent dragons to help defend their land. The dragons began spitting out jade and jewels which became the nearly 2000 islands and islets surrounding the bay."
 
Alyson says:
"Magnificent limestone rocks and islands crowd Halong Bay and around every corner is yet another awesome vista. In the dry season, the blue sky, the turquoise waters, and the towering grey cliffs are stunning, but between February and April the weather maybe be cool and wet, and low cloud can obscure the horizons and in the summer months tropical storms can be a hazard. Dozens of tour boats go out everyday, for one or two night trips, and some arrange to stop at Cat Ba Island overnight to include a trek or cycling. The tours can be easily booked in Hanoi but choosing a trip is a bit of a lottery unless you can afford the upmarket, expensive air-conditioned boats, so look for a trip that include some sightseeing in one or more of the bay's many caves, or advertises some sea kayaking in secluded bays and swimming from the remote unexploited sandy beaches. After that, sit back and enjoy the view!"
