Upon departing the city of Hanoi, enjoy a countryside drive to the magnificence of Ha Long Bay, one of the most beautiful settings in all of Vietnam. En route to the bay, photo opportunities are ever-present as you pass through small villages and rice paddies that dot the surroundings. 

 The bay covers some 930 square miles and is dotted with a myriad of over 3,000 islands. Artists both young and old have tired to capture on canvas or in prose the dynamic and sensual beauty of this region. It is for the traveler to capture its beauty either in memory or photograph while cruising the placid waters of this spectacular setting.

Choosing an old-styled Chinese junk that blends itself into the setting that creates this glorious venue, cruise the waters aside the hundreds of isles and monoliths that comprise one of the most beautiful settings to be found on your journey. Shades of emerald from grass and vine, tethered to the stately monoliths project their sunlit glow across the placid waters of this peaceful bay. Be it by memory or photo, the experience is to be rekindled over a lifetime.
