Our first suggestion on what to visit when in Vietnam is Ha Long Bay. With the cluster of rocky limestone outcrops rising from the green water makes the whole picture more like a scene from a part of Lord of The Rings. With over 2000 islands sculpted over the centuries by natural processes, this area has an out-of-this-world landscape. It is located in northern Vietnam, 130km east of Hanoi. Various legends and myths are connected with Ha Long Bay, but we will not disclose them now. Whether true or false this is one of our top things to do in Vietnam.
