Halong Bay cruises
Quan Lan Island Tour
next to the famous Ha Long Bay, a world natural heritage,
Bai Tu Long Bay is not any the less beautiful with
hundreds of islets rising from the clear water and long
smooth sand banks.
After admiring the beauty of the limestone rocks in
numerous interesting shapes and discovering deep caves or
mangrove forests by boat, visitors still have much more to
see on Quan Lan Island with pristine beauty featuring
unspoiled environment. The deep blue sea has strong waves
and white sand beaches, which span over several
kilometers. Some distance away from the beach stand the
very green wild pines, further add to its original charm.
Meanwhile, Cua Ong temple is famous as one of the most
sacred places in Vietnam. The temple is built in Van Don
district, in the middle of the mountains, facing Bai Tu
