Discover Halong Bay, Vietnam

www.cla-travel.asia

If you're connected with me on social platforms, you already know that I went to Vietnam last month. From flight ticket, hotel reservation to cruise tours, my sister had meticulously planned my/our itinerary. The hotel car met us at the airport with a ply card of my sister's name - something which I love, no matter how many times it happens.

As soon as I got out of the airport, I knew that Vietnam is such a beautiful place to explore. It was calm and serene, and the landscape  from the moving car was already making me want to turn into a photographer.

Alright, I'm writing this post from my own personal experience regarding my trip to  Halong Bay, Vietnam with Wego Halong last month. 

Halong Bay is popular with tourists for a reason. It's gorgeous and everyone wants to see it ! we had a fantastic time, and I couldn't even imagine how amazing the trip would have been with warmer weather allowing us to comfortably  kayaking/bamboo boat in the bay's teal waters. The natural beauty of Halong Bay is undeniable. And quite honestly, you would be missing out if you traveled to Vietnam without a visit to the Bay. 
It was raining that morning. I couldn't help but worry about the possibility of rain ruining our day trip to Halong Bay. Luckily, in a few hours the sun came out and burned most of the haze away. Thanks God!

This picture was taken in Sung Sot Cave, one of the famous site in Halong Bay. A huge cavity, the cave is around 10,000 square meters large and contains three rooms or partitions, which are linked by a smooth walkway. Each of the rooms contains hundreds of stalagmites and stalactites. Most of the cave is colorfully lit with artificial light that highlights the rocky walls' interesting features, and a knowledgeable guide can give you some great insights into the cave's history as well as helping you find the mystical shapes and figures in the cave's walls.

So, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a ''must visit'' place for all avid travellers. The over 1900 islets gives one a feeling of being on another planet.
