Hear the name Viet Nam I immediately imagined war film Tour of Duty I’ve watched time SD. First, this movie was so relieved to me until one day I want to go to Viet Nam.
One of the popular destinations in Viet Nam and became an icon of Halong Bay is located in the Gulf of Tonkin.
Halong Bay has over 1,600 large islands and several islets that form clumps of white limestone rocks are beautiful and amazing.
However Halong Bay uninhabited because most the Islands was rugged and barren by the rock chalk. Arguably the Halong Bay is not touchable by humans because the hard rock made of islands in Halong Bay are unworthy to live and just enough to enjoy its beauty.
Headed to Halong Bay, it takes up to 3 hours from the city of Hanoi. This destination is located in the Gulf of Tonkin, province of Quảng Ninh, Viet Nam. It is located approximately 165 km is about from the capital of Hanoi Viet Nam itself.
The extent of approximately 1,600 ha and includes 43,400 large islands in it with views of towering limestone rock. The beauty of Halong Bay is based in karst limestone landforms that form the pillars of beauty along the side.
First, coupled with the presence of arches and goa-goa formed due to erosion and abrasion around tourist destinations, will certainly add to the beauty of Halong Bay.
It’s worth staying overnight in Halong Bay because the most appropriate photographing landscapes are the morning. Once at Halong Bay, we should head to the ship that takes travelers to cross Halong Bay; Halong Bay Boat Harbour is quite clean and large.
When I entered the port in the shape of the letter, U proved to be colossal, one of the most significant tourist ports I’ve ever seen. From the ports I saw so many boats are available to take the visitors, was reminded of the colossal film China if you want to fight very much and crowded.
The trip from the Harbour to Halong Bay wearing a wooden boat takes less than 1 hour; we will pass the rock rocks. Next look at the process of regression and transgression of the ocean over time was able to produce an excellent view start from the top of the cone-shaped limestone rocks and the eruption of such results, the results add to the beauty of the parallel process of the geological happens here.
See the hills that are on this I am reminded of Halong Bay with islands of Raja Ampat, Papua Wayag somewhat different if people say pretty much the same. Wayag, Raja Ampat in mountain slopes, have a smaller Cone and gathering into one of the Islands, while the vast Halong Bay region.
See the shape is probably more similar to the limestone was in Phi Island Thailand. Because of the breadth of Halong Bay is thus divided into two i.e. kriterion region VII and VIII kriterion. Kriterion region VII for example, in it there is an awful lot of limestone islands and small islands towering up into the sea.
All of which is made up of various shapes, sizes and unique. Despite having been formed millions of centuries ago, but its beauty is not tergradasi by human civilization. Create the form of a unique and unusual that it was including the magnificent towering pillar due to the invasion, the arches on the surface of the sea that naturally formed because the results of the eruption and a variety of cave-cave beautiful some of which you can log in.
Indeed most fitting photographing the beauty of Halong Bay from the air, if in Indonesia I bring a drone to anywhere. While the time to it here by chance I do not carry the drones so it can only capture the beauty of Halong Bay from the bottom only.
One of the tourist areas in Halong Bay is the region VIII kriterion. Here you will find the Tower of Halong Bay, which is above sea level. The area of the tower is the one that is located in the famous rocks with breathtaking Fengcong cone.
Also, there is also a lake with calm water which is also surrounded by many lines. The Dolines are an important asset of the Karst Fencong will appear when receding and will sink (not visible) when the tide. So if are not pairs we can paddle RIAs here.
Halong Bay-crowned as national sites in 1962 by the Government of Viet Nam that subsequently became the site of the National Landscape under the legal and cultural heritage of the Government of Viet Nam are contained in regulations in 2009 as for ownership of land held directly by the provincial government.
Destinations at once this historical heritage also protected directly by some laws which apply nationally and include some of the Government’s decision.
If you are a first time traveling to Viet Nam, my advice is obligated to come to Halong Bay. Because it has become the icon of the natural beauty of Viet Nam, I recommend you stay here for two nights so that satisfied the way roads here. The natural beauty of Ha Long Bay, which makes this place very famous in the world.
