Located in the Gulf of Tonkin, Ha Long Bay consists of more than 1,000 limestone islands. Medieval fortresses and temples
can be found on some of the islands, and archaeologists have found evidence of Stone Age habitation in some of the islands’
mysterious caves. Today, most of the islands are uninhabited, except for populations of wild boar, deer, monkeys, wild cats,
and rare birds. In 1994, UNESCO added Ha Long Bay to the World Heritage List in recognition of its “exceptional esthetic values”
and “great biological interest.”
