Halong Bay Sunrise
Halong Bay, Vietnam
Situated in northeast Vietnam, Halong Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is known for its thousands of limestone karst islands in various shapes and sizes of which there are between 1,960 and 2,00 of them. The limestone in this bay has gone through continual change over the past 500 million years of formation in different conditions and environments.
This particular morning sunrise saw a calm sea swathed in the usual fog (said to be caused by excessive pollution inland). Junk boat tours with companies like Paradise Cruises operate year-round in Halong Bay.
