Halong Bay, Vietnam

Halong Bay, or “Bay of the Descending Dragon” is filled with thousands of towering limestone islands topped by rainforests. Junk boats and sea kayak expeditions paraded us past scenic rock formations rising from the water like dragon teeth. The TienOng cave, a star on our journey, is peppered with beautiful stalactites and stalagmites, formed from ancient limestone 700,000 ago.
