Ha Long Bay & Thien Cung Cave

A serene sea greets hundreds of tourists in Ha Long Bay, which campaigned heavily (but failed to make the grade) for the New Seven Wonders of the World. If we have our own Hundred Islands in Pangasinan, Ha Long boasts of 3,000 of limestone islands with dramatic peaks. From the ocean, some of the shoreline reminded me of those magnificent Cliffs of Dover in England.

This is the Eye in the Sky!

These boats will take you around Halong Bay and through Cat Ba Island & Haiphong City.

The way to Thien Cung Cave and Pau Gu Grotto.
