Some 1,600 islands, thick with greenery, form a maze of channels in the azure waters off northeastern Vietnam. Although people have lived in the region of Ha Long Bay for thousands of years, most of the islands remain uninhabited. But these coves and natural towers are rich with wildlife. For centuries, this spectacular seascape has inspired wonder.

The name Ha Long, Vietnamese for “descending dragon,” is reflected in a legend: Once, when the Viet people faced invasion, a dragon flew down from heaven to their defense. The creature sprayed not only fire, but also jewels that became the green archipelago.

The scientific explanation for the rock formations, known as karst, is also amazing. For millions of years, seashells and sediments fell to an ancient seafloor, forming solid rock. Tectonic activity raised the resulting limestone above water. Rainfall and rivers dissolved exposed rock, and carved valleys that flooded after the last ice age, creating this rare example of a karst field at sea.

Features include lakes and caves through the islands, and notches and tunnels where seawater has worn at the pillars’ foundations. The fantastic landscape also continues into two adjacent national parks, on Cat Ba Island and Bai Tu Long Bay.

You can go kayaking, caving, or even take a ride in a seaplane to experience the grandeur of these enchanting tropical islands.

  • The beauty of this locality is surreal, even unearthly. I really do understand why the legend about its formation arose. A prosaic explanation seems inadequate. I have to say a karst topography in the sea is rather exotic! Lovely video.

  • Ha Long Bay is one of the best choices which can perfectly satisfy tourists' travel apetites when travelling to Southeast Asia, especially to Vietnam. I believe that the awe-inspiring views of show-stopping ancient islands would be an outsized and unforgettable experience for all tourists who ever visited the bay where dragon descended.

  • I wanted to "Like" this video, sadly it was filled with AWFUL narration – she is speaking way too close to the microphone!!! The Videography is great. It is a shame that Nat. Geo. was so incompetent when hiring a narrator.
