Being the one of the World heritage, Halong bay has overshadowed its neighbor Lan Ha bay for years. However, today when the fame of Halong bay has impressed all the world, it also be come over crowded sometimes, it’s when people start to realize that besides Halong bay, there’s still a more laid-back and untouched Lan Ha bay, which can offer the experience of exploring a new land in Vietnam.
Located to the south of its famous neighbour Halong bay, Lan Ha Bay belongs to a different province but could be in fact considered as a part of Halong bay. Stretching on the area of over 7,000 hectares, Lan Ha Bay possesses 400 karst moutains, the home to more than 100 white sand beaches.
Owning the majestic Cat Ba Island, Lan Ha Bay is able to offer ample opportunities to adventure lovers. Out of the group of 3 bays including Halong, Bai Tu Long and Lan Ha bay, the place has the best conditions for snorkeling, diving and swimming and could be said to be a wonderful destination for trekking, deep water soloing or rock climbing. If you could, you can enjoy the feeling of jumping off a cliff into the emerald sea at some spots in your journey.
The only disadvantage is that Lan Ha Bay is managed to preserve its untouch nature so it is not so open to tourists as Halong bay. However, thanks to that, we now have a chance to admire the pristine Lan Ha bay. If you don’t mind miss out the wonderful Halong bay, or have extra time for both the place, consider Lan Ha bay as a part of your great time in Vietnam and it never fails you.
