“Nurture Mother Nature and she will nurture us”
Everybody has heard of Halong Bay: it is world famous since its classification as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This means it has experienced a huge boom in mass-tourism. The thousands of tourists who pass through each year leave behind them a wreckage of litter, pollution, and over-crowded sights. These problems are becoming more and more prevalent, and savvy tourists are looking for other ways to experience the unique landscapes of the Halong area.Enter Lan Ha Bay, home to Cat Ba National Park; Halong’s quieter, more beautiful twin and neighbor. Classified as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Lan Ha Bay boasts the same dramatic seascapes and towering limestone cliffs as Halong, but is comparatively undiscovered as a tourist destination. The secluded beaches are cleaner, the water sparkles turquoise, and the many local floating fishing villages are vibrant with Vietnamese culture, unadulterated by mass tourism. A paradise for nature-lovers, Lan Ha Bay is the perfect place to kayak, swim, snorkel, sail, and generally enjoy getting up close to the breath-taking scenery without having to battle through throngs of other tourists.
