According to Huffington Post, Ha Long Bay is a UNESCO-recognized wonderland of over 3,000 whimsically-shaped islands jutting sharply out of the tranquil green waters.

Aside from sheer visual splendor, Ha Long Bay is also home to countless caves, with many offering privileged views of the surrounding islands, and a wide variety of endemic wildlife.

To thoroughly explore the nooks and crannies of this magical coast is to buy a bunk on one of the local boats, which regularly take excursions to key points in the bay.

The other nine geographic names include Twelve Apostles (Australia), Legzira (Morocco), Cap Blanc (Mauritania), Los Gigantes (Spain), Cliffs of Moher (Ireland), Cape Town (South Africa), Lofoten Islands(Norway), Krabi (Thailand), and Amalfi Coast (Italy)./.
