Situated in northern Vietnam near the Chinese border, 170km northeast from Hanoi, Halong Bay is one of the world’s natural wonder.
The Bay is dotted with 1,600 limestone islands and islets and covers an area of over 1,500 sqkm. This extraordinary area was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994.
Hanoi, one of the most beautiful of the colonial Indochinese cities, is often the start or end point of a trip to Vietnam, and what a great welcome or farewell it is. Oozing with charm, Hanoi has gone through wholesale changes since Vietnam swung open its doors to tourism, but it remains true to its essential personality and is an amazing city to experience.
Nestled high in Hoang Lien Mountain, Sapa Townlet is known as a beautiful and romantic resort which is 38km far from Lao Cai City. Built as a hill station during French colonial days, Sapa is a wonderful place to escape sweltering summer in Hanoi.
Located about 90 km from Hanoi to the south, endowed with many places of particular interest which have been well known inside and outside Vietnam such as Tam Coc – Bich Dong, Cuc Phuong National Park,Trang An Grottoes and Van Long Nature Reserves, Ninh Binh has long become a popular destination in Vietnam.
Topographically, Hoa Binh is a region of high mountains. Coming to Hoa Binh, tourists may have no chance to see the immense fields as these in Lai Chau or Son La; but may be compensated with the romantic picturesque scenery of water, sky and mountain.
