Sculpted by Nature

By Linda Tancs

In northeast Vietnam lies Ha Long Bay, an expansive area of over 1600 largely uninhabited islands and islets.  Thanks to its exceptional abundance of limestone cliffs, caves and arches sculpted by nature, this popular tourist destination is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Reachable from Hanoi (about a four-hour drive each way), consider a two-day excursion, complete with junk boat accommodations.  You won’t want to miss the dark sands of Scorched Beach or the picturesque formations of Heavenly Palace Cave.  Visit by month’s end while the weather is best.
