Halong Bay rest right above the Red River Delta and is covered by beautiful green seas. Halong Bay is the most beautiful sight to see, it''s also covered with over 3,000 one of a kind mountainous islands. These mountainous islands are known for their dolomite and limestone rock symmetry. Legend tells it that this very bay was formed when a large dragon hurtled to earth before history was recorded. By the carvings and formation of the lime stones, the legend doesn''t seem too unbelievable.
Besides the legend that Halong Bay holds, this bay also possesses a couple tourist attractions. One of the sights to see would be the large caves that can be found in some of the larger islands. The caves add a little spunk to a extensive, laid back boat ride. Even though you''ll need to take a couple safety precautions while inside of the caves, it doesn''t take any excitement from the things to be seen.
