Ha Long Bay listed among 25 most beautiful places around the world

CNN announced the list on April 22 in celebration of Earth Day.

Accordingly, its enduring popularity has made Ha Long Bay one of the hottest natural attractions in Southeast Asia.

In addition to Ha Long Bay, the other most beautiful places were located in various countries and territories around the world, including Bwindi Impenetrable Forest (Uganda), Samburu (Kenya), Mount Toubkal (Morocco), El Nido (the Philippines), Rotorua (New Zealand), Kata Tjuta (Australia), and the Maldives.

Ha Long Bay, which is home to 1,969 islets of hulking limestone and deep, green waters, was recognised twice by the UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage. It has been named one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

Sail on a junk boat or pick up a kayak and get lost in the quieter reaches of this vast and fascinating corner of the South China Sea/East Sea, the U.S. news described.

Earlier, The New York Daily News, a U.S. newspaper based in New York City, named Ha Long Bay the number one destination among 15 natural wonders to see before they disappear. 

Recognised twice by the UNESCO as a global heritage for its landscape and geological value, Ha Long Bay has become a magnetic destination for visitors to Quang Ninh.
