UNESCO World Heritage Site Halong Bay of Quang Ninh Province has been highly appreciated by BBC News as this prestigious news channel has named this Vietnam's gem as top 15 most amazing landscapes and rock formations across the world.
The entire Halong Bay (included Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay, Lan Ha Bay) is vast with an incredible number of islands and islets reaching to more than 3,000 in total and specifically 1,600 islands in Halong Bay itself.
