Northeast Vietnam has a gem of a natural wonder, so much so in fact that it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I'm talking about Ha Long Bay, filled with limestone "towers" that shoot out of the water. Ha Long Bay translates into "bay of descending dragons" so you can imagine all the lore that comes along with it. I was excited to see it for myself so I grabbed one of the many 2-day tours to the area and this is what I thought.
