Cat Ba Islands, Ha Long Bay, Vietnam
Claimed to be on the prime among the many seven pure wonders of the world, you would simply spend a few days questioning at this magical creation of nature. An area delusion explains that the bay was karst have been created when a dragon descended on the ocean to thwart Chinese language invaders and spat out jade stones and pearls that ultimately grew to become the islands. The phrase “Ha Long” which means “descending dragon” is why it’s referred to as so. The geological purpose of it being created by tens of millions of years of mountain formation, encroaching sea and tectonic plate actions is equally awe inspiring.
The seascape is a set of about 2000 limestone karst of all sizes, shapes and shades of inexperienced jutting out the ocean. It’s a web site that you simply’ll see nowhere else on the earth and the sensation of cruising on luxury Halong Bay cruises, irrespective of if the skies are sunny or overcast, is a rare feeling.
