Hạ Long Bay – must go destination in a lifetime

Hạ Long Bay of Việt Nam has been included in the list of

“100 trips you must take in your lifetime”

recently released by the US magazine Business Insider.

The magazine recommended spending a night on a junk boat in the bay, amid a multitude of limestone islands and islets rising from the sea, in a variety of sizes and shapes and presenting picturesque, unspoiled nature.

The bay covers an area of 43,400 ha and includes over 1,969 islands and islets, most of which are uninhabited and unaffected by humans.

Recognised by UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage in 1994, Hạ Long Bay welcomes 2.5 million tourists each year, including 1 million foreign visitors.

It was voted as one of the world’s seven new wonders of nature last year.

Also on the magazine’s list are trips of hiking along the unrestored section of the Great Wall of China, attending a cherry blossom festival in Japan and driving a classic car in Havana, Cuba.
