Halong Bay

Halong Bay

At the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa we keep enjoying summer travelling around the Asian continent. Today we are taking you to Vietnam to swim in the beautiful Halong Bay.

Halong Bay is considered one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. It is located in Vietnam in Quang Ninh Province, 200 kilometres away from Hanoi. It features thousands of islands and limestone karsts in different sizes and shapes. It is one the main tourist attractions in the country.

Halong Bay hides a famous legend behind its name. According to this legend, when Vietnamese had to fight against Chinese invaders coming from the sea, the Jade Emperor sent the Mother Dragon and her children to help them. These dragons incinerated the enemies with giant pearls and emeralds and these emeralds from the dragon’s mouth formed an invincible defensive wall against the enemies. After thousands of years, the wall of emerald turned into island and islets of different sizes and shapes. This is why to remember the help of Mother Dragon and her children the people who lived there named the bay where the Mother Dragon descended “Ha Long or Halong”.

There are other stories behind the origin of the name of the bay. According to them, Halong Bay emerged after a dragon fell over the sea hittig it with its tale.

Over 2,000 islands make up Halong Bay. Although most of them are uninhabited, they do have pagodas. And in every single island, we can find different types of animals and vegetation.

The bay´s seabed is a must see for scuba diving lovers. Other activities tourists can do during their visits are climbing or taking a boat ride on a traditional Vietnamese wood boat. Doubtless, sailing around these ancient islands is an unforgettable and unique experience.
