Ha Long Bay, Vietnam / …in the Gulf of Tonkin, it includes some 1,600 islands and islets, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. Because of their precipitous nature, most of the islands are uninhabited and unaffected by a human presence / unknown photographer

  1. I recently wrote a post on my visit to Halong Bay about 2 weeks ago. I just hope Vietnam’s Ministry of Tourism starts to recognize the impact of so many tourists visiting this UNESCO sight.

  2. Great photo, but the landscape looks like a river with banks, rather than an ocean bay like Ha Long Bay, where the karst peaks emerge from the ocean. The photo might show the Yulong River by Yangshuo, near Guilin, China. See the wikitravel article for a similar photo. http://wikitravel.org/en/Yangshuo. Ha Long Bay is beautiful. We visited it a few months ago; I’ll post photos to my blog in couple weeks.
