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.

  3. If you are traveling on a Vietnam tour package, then all of your transportation is taken care of. In general, roads in Vietnam are in good condition, and improving all the time. For longer distances, fly Vietnam Airlines. The carrier has an excellent network within Vietnam, and flights to the key cities in the region (BKK, HKG, SIN, etc). Tip: within Vietnam, upgrades to business class are inexpensive, usually $30-50 per leg. This is well worth it. For a few dollars more, you get: separate (and fast) check in, use of airport VIP lounges (complete with drinks, hot meals, and comfortable seats while you wait for your flight), expedited luggage delivery, priority boarding, and much more comfortable seat with extra space + legroom.
