The peaceful boat ride between the islands of Halong Bay was one of the highlights of our trip. We sat there and were amazed!

Scenes from the James Bond film "Tomorrow never dies" were filmed here. Here, Pierce Brosnan and a Chinese agent search for the stealth ship of the villain, a megalomaniac media mogul who wants to start a world war.

Halong Bay (Vietnamese: Vinh Ha Long, "Bay of the Submerged Dragon") is an area of around 1,500 km2 in the Gulf of Tonkin, in northern Vietnam. According to official figures, almost 2000 limestone cliffs, mostly uninhabited islands and rocks, some several hundred metres high, rise out of the water. In 1994, UNESCO declared the bay a World Heritage Site. The tourist sigthseeing programme includes a visit to a dripstone cave on one of the larger islands.
