Vietnam’s Halong Bay is an unusual vision of beauty. The place is dotted with 1600 islands and islets. The waters are emerald green. This combination makes Halong Bay look like a scene pulled out of a movie scene! The numerous activities taking place here include scuba diving, boat cruising, swimming, mountain climbing etc.
No wonder the scene is Northern Vietnams most popular tourism spot. For me, a day long cruise in the bay was simply a magical adventure. The other outstanding place that I visited in Vietnam is definitely The Imperial City of Hue. In this historically rich place, you will find the Citadel, which was the dwelling place of emperors, their families and officers. If tombs are your thing, you might be interested in checking out the numerous tombs of former emperors in the city.
