Halong Bay I

The sun breaks through the early morning haze over Halong Bay.

Heading out...

Halong Bay in northern Vietnam is a series of 2 000 islands that rise hundreds of feet over the warm tropical waters. A UNESCO World Heritage designated site, it covers 1 553 square kilometres and is one of Vietnam's most popular tourist haunts and hundreds of boats travel the waters, taking people on day and overnight trips.

According to the legend the bay formed when a dragon plunged into the sea whipping its tail from side to side in a frenzy, carving up the region.

More over the next few days.

Gorgeous, Jules.
And the landscape's not bad either (hee hee).
Is this the place they filmed The Man With The Golden Gun?
