Breathtaking islets to stunning sunsets: Why Ha Long Bay should be your next trip

There is something unbelievably serene and breathtaking about beaches, don’t you agree? The never-ending expanse of the sea, the stunning islands and the precious solitude – if like us, these things excite you too, then Ha Long Bay should be on your travel list.

We recently travelled to Vietnam, onboard VietJet’s first direct flight from New Delhi, and visited one of the country’s most coveted gems – Ha Long Bay. And, needless to say, fell in love with it.

Immersed in incredible legends of the past and the rich cultural heritage, along with the alluring crystal blue emerald water, this UNESCO World Heritage site is a traveller’s paradise. While Vietnam is known as the Land of the Ascending Dragon, Ha Long is known as the descending dragon (when put together, this is what the words mean).
