Halong Bay in Vietnam, Bay of the Descending Dragon was twice times listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of its outstanding, universal aesthetic value (1994), and geological & geomorphological value (2000).
Bai Tu Long Bay takes up 3/4 of the Halong Bay area and is just as stunning as the centers, but much quieter, calmer and serene. There are some reasons to visit Bai Tu Long Bay:
- Off the beaten track, Bai Tu Long Bay is two times bigger than the center of Halong Bay, but the Bai Tu Long Bay is a very peaceful place that is not covered by hundreds of boats, ideal to take the road less travelled.
- Neither words nor pictures can describe the magical beauty of the bay with mysterious caves, hidden lagoons, well-kept nature beaches…The scenery is similar to other parts of Halong Bay but if you join trip in a longer time, there would be very beautiful area to be explored.
- The fishing villages and magnificent karst mountains have been developed as a sustainable business associated with environment protection, to help the families who live in the Bay now and then. What’s a way of sustainable living on the water.
- The bay is free from noise pollution and cleaner; the boats always seem to be far enough away from other to ensure our privacy, and people can even hear the water tapping on the side of boat. It can be said that Bai Tu Long Bay is cleaner because of less tourism traffic and better awareness of local people, following program “For a green Halong Bay”, founded by Indochina Junk company.
Being the pioneer in 2007, Indochina Junk has now total 6 years’ been operating the cruise service in Bai Tu Long Bay in full permission, service commitment, and Bai Tu Long Bay well deserves guests’ expectation, for its own treasures.
