The editors of American magazine Condé Nast Traveler have selected Ha Long Bay in northern Vietnam among world’s 40 most colorful places “to brighten up winter days.”
The UNESCO World Heritage Site Ha Long Bay, in Quang Ninh Province, is well known for its “blue-green water, and spectacular limestone karst landforms.”
The magazine advised tourists to rent a junk to cruise through thousands of small vegetation-covered islands and towering limestone cliffs that dot the mist-shrouded bay.
The most ideal time to visit the natural wonder is between March and April and September to November as there is very little rain and cruise conditions are near perfect.
