Gulf of Tonkin

The legendary Gulf of Tonkin, bounded by both Vietnam and China, covers three bays: the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Halong Bay, Lan Ha Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay. Peppered with over 3,000 islands, the Gulf of Tonkin creates truly majestic and breathtaking views. Resulting from millions of years of erosion, the islands feature numerous grottoes and caves, lagoons and coral reefs which display an amazing range of biodiversity.
