10 Beautiful Halong Bay Photos That Show You Why This UNESCO Site Should Be Preserved

10 Beautiful Halong Bay Photos That Show You Why This UNESCO Site Should Be Preserved

By Zygmunt Spray

Halong Bay, located on the northeast coast of Vietnam, is one of the country's most popular tourist destinations for its gorgeous views. With its stunning beauty, Halong Bay became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1994. The resulting increased tourism has posed some challenges for this area, and there are no shortages for luxury cruises to choose from. 

When visiting this gem, we suggest choosing a cruise company that gives back to the local fishing community and works to keep the bay clean of trash. We want the future generations of this amazing local community to continue to enjoy Halong Bay in all its beauty.
