Ha Long Bay

In Must Do - Vietnam by The H4C Team

You simply can’t visit Vietnam without seeing Ha Long Bay.

While parts of it can be overrun by tourists, pick the right operator and take off for a one or two night tour and you will find yourself in some of the most peaceful scenery in all of Asia. Declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994, the bay is located around 3-4 hours driving time from Hanoi, and is home to over 1,600 limestone pillars.

Paradise Cruises offer nine exquisitely-furnished ships and a range of one- or two-day options.
