Lime stones at the Hạ Long Bay

Lime stones at the Hạ Long Bay
Despite what geologists may claim, the bay was actually created when an immense dragon plunged to Earth here before recorded history. Its mighty tail carved the great stone seabed violently before the creature flew away to the place where legends are born. This fable does not seem so far fetched as you sail among thousands of limestone outcroppings, which look like so many blades thrust deep into the mist from below the sea. Many are barren, weathered and rocky. Others are cloaked in vegetation so dense that it is impossible to see the stone beneath. At dusk, they all take on mysterious shades of gray, mauve and olive.

A visit to the Hạ Long Bay is a dream indeed, but you've to avoid the flow of thousands tourists during high seasons. The best way to enjoy this natural phenomenon is the stay on a houseboat in the bay and starting the tours by own.
