    UNESCO World Heritage Site Ha Long Bay has once again been included in a “Best of” list this time by a travel website called Touropia, a website focused on featuring the most amazing sights around the world divided into various categorizations.

    With so many changes happening in the city of Ha Long, Quang Ninh province, the city officials and private sectors are actually expecting a significant increase in the number of tourists that will arrive starting this year especially with the launch of new attractions earlier this year including a cable car that can transport 2,000 people an hour, and was certified by the Guiness World Records as the highest capacity in the world, with one cabin holding up to 230 people at a time and for having the world’s tallest cable car tower at 188.88 meters above ground.

    “Ha Long Bay is a magical place with thousands of islands in different shapes and sizes,” explains Edgar Cayanan, General Manager for Paradise Cruises who hails from the Philippines. “No matter how many times you see or visit it, every time you wake up in the middle of the bay brings you a different feeling inside.

    According to USA Today, the beauty of Ha Long Bay is from more than 1,500 islands and inlets jutting out of its turquoise waters. Thanks to its “exceptional scenic beauty and outstanding geological values”, Ha Long Bay in Vietnam’s northern coast is a must-see “without a doubt,” it said.

    The website advised tourists to take one of the overnight cruises offered within the bay and watch the sunset over its tranquil waters.

    Previously, the New York-based news website Business Insider also praised Ha Long Bay for its surprising beauty and interesting legend.

    The website noted that according to local legend, the bay’s islands were formed when a dragon charged from the mountains towards the coast. Its tail carved out valleys and crevasses until the dragon hit the water, flooding the area and leaving nothing but peaks visible.
