HA LONG BAY

On the coast of Vietnam, east of Hanoi, is the world heritage listed Ha Long Bay. Scattered throughout the bay are around 2000 spectacular limestone islands. The constant heavy mist (either coastal fog or Hanoi smog) adds to the mysterious appearance of the region.Image © John Lovett

  1. What an exotic place! And yet we have so many things in common. Beautiful floating fishing village. Tanks for sharing. We are with you there!! (Ah, the sun coming up from the mountain talking about being in the right place at the right time)
