Ha Long Bay

HA LONG BAY (Vietnam)

Meaning "descending dragon," this bay features thousands of limestone karsts and isles in various shapes and sizes, the result of 20 million years of geological evolution. A famous Vietnamese poet called it "rock wonder in the sky." During the Vietnam War, the US Navy placed mines between some islands, some of which continue to pose a threat to shipping.
