These 03 bays form a vast gulf region with over 3,000 islets. In the land, Halong City is divided into two parts: East Halong and West Halong. While western part (Bai Chay area) is an animated tourism zone as many have known, eastern part (Hon Gai) is an industrial zone with bustling city life. The city borders Halong Bay to the south with a 20 kilometer coastline. As the cultural, economical and political centre of Quang Ninh Province, Halong City is where most of official buildings and other commercial activities are concentrated.
