Halong Bay is breathtaking and so are its neighbours. Bai Tu Long, immediately northeast of Ha long Bay, is beautiful in each of every centimeter, plus, less touristy and crowdy. Bai Tu Long has become more and more attractive for its primitive beauty. Bai Tu Long Bay, a long strip of islands which was created when the entire limestone plateau sank below sea level, socalled the submerged dragon boasting 3000 craggy and towering islets, is magnificient by its own way. It is a source of inspiration and ancient legends, some of which dating back to the thousands of years which tells a story of a dragon descended into the deep water spitting out gems as he did so.
Bai Tu Long National Park is a major selling point of the archipelago, a stunning region encompassing many islands that comes with many endangered species of birds and animals, along with dense jungle. Other sights worth seeing in Bai Tu Long Bay are the fishing village at Minh Chau Island, Thong Thien Cave, Phat Co Island, and Cua Ong Temple. Historical and cultural sites.
