Gallery: Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

If there is one place you HAVE to visit in Vietnam, in my opinion, it’s Ha Long Bay. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is filled with thousands of limestone karsts and isles in different shapes and sizes. I had never seen anything like it before I visited and there was nowhere else on my travels that came close to it.

It’s simply one of the most beautiful places you can imagine. I could have spent days sailing around all the tiny islands. I did a day boat trip which included a stop at some caves, kayaking, and lots of chilling on the boat in the sunshine and enjoying the beautiful scenery.

This is a very special and unique place and I would highly recommend that you include it in your itinerary if you’re heading to Vietnam. There is so much to see and explore here and it gives you a nice break from the many hectic cities.

  1. Nature is rad. It’s crazy to think that there are places on this earth that seem to foreign to some (like me) but so many people grew up calling that home. Awesome pictures.
