Hanoi- the capital of Vietnam since the 11th century still retaining a charming air from its colonial days, visitors are often impressed with the quietness and subtle beauty of Hanoi. Located far from Ha Noi 100 km, Ha Long Bay is recognized as the World Heritage since 1994. The process of nearly full erosion and weathering on karst created the unique Hạ Long Bay in the world. In a not very large area, thousands of islands with different forms look like glittering emeralds attached to the blue scarf of a virgin. The area where many stone islands concentrate has spectacular scenes and world-famous caves and is the center of Ha Long Bay Natural Heritage.

Once dearly called Diamond of the Far East, HCM city is now the most populated city in Vietnam. Vung Tau is a city in Southern Viet Nam. Its close location to Saigon and its beautiful beaches and fresh air makes it a very popular destination for weekends.

Halong Bay - Photo by An Bui
Hanoi- the capital of Vietnam since the 11th century still retaining a charming air from its colonial days, visitors are often impressed with the quietness and subtle beauty of Hanoi.

Ha Long Bay is recognized as the World Heritage since 1994. The process of nearly full erosion and weathering on karst created the unique Hạ Long Bay in the world. In a not very large area, thousands of islands with different forms look like glittering emeralds attached to the blue scarf of a virgin. The area where many stone islands concentrate has spectacular scenes and world-famous caves and is the center of Ha Long Bay Natural Heritage.

Hoa Lu, 100 km south of Hanoi, was the capital city of Vietnam under the Dinh Dynasty. Apart from the historical aspects, the area is also one of astounding natural beauty with limestone peaks. It is true that this area is often referred to as the Ha Long Bay on land.
