Quang Ninh province owns many beautiful places in Gulf of Tonkin. If Halong Bay were like a romantic, pure and charming girl, Bai Tu Long Bay seems to be a girl in wild and enchanted.
At Bai Tu Long Bay, we enjoy the air and the beauty of national forest ecology named Bai Tu Long – National Park. Marine ecosystems occupy two thirds of the area of national park. This is the place that reserves many genetic samples of rare plants and animals listed in the Red Book. Belonging to the nature will make you feel like getting lost in Jurassic Park of Steven Spielberg. Moreover, visitors could get a chance to enjoy the architectural beauty of temples and pagodas built in Ly dynasty period.
The water is as pure as pearl and sandy beach may sketch your stress out and bring you to the relaxation of natural harmony. Swimming, playing some sports or just sun-bathing is also well-treated ways for you.
Vung Vieng and Cong Dam are two floating fishing villages in Bai Tu Long Bay where you can witness the daily life of the local fishermen. These villages are a true water world which life there rises and falls following the tides. Houses and school are built on boats or floating platforms, so every daily activity are happened here in very different way from land. Sometimes, you can hang for a while to join in fishing with local people and you would know better about their lives. The best things from here may come from the loyalty to ancestors, to where they were born. People from floating village rarely give up their boat and move to land. Even the children get hard to deal with education but you can see that how strongly they earn to live. They need to know how to survive so they learn how to swim before learn to walk and helping their parents from very early. That’s the spirit learn for everyone!
There is always a good Halong Bay cruises for you to dare to experience. Just take a look and think about it but not too long.
