Halong Bay, Vietnam Luxury Cruises

Halong Bay is located in the north of Vietnam, around 100 miles east of the city of Hanoi. The bay is well-known for the thousands of tiny islets situated just offshore, which create an enchanting and captivating environment, often regarded as being amongst one of the greatest wonders of the world. This magical bay boasts breath taking natural beauty and a fascinating local culture, creating a particularly memorable holiday destination that has been declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its remarkable landscape and mystical ambience. The name Halong translates to English as Bay of Descending Dragons, an apt named for a location that looks like something taken straight from the pages of a story book.
