Ha Long Bay

Ha Long Bay, situated in the Gulf of Tonkin, Vietnam, includes some 1600 islands and islets forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. Because of their precipitous nature, most of the islands are uninhabited and relatively unaffected by human influence.

A wonderful  masterpiece of nature that turns thousands of dumb soulless stone islands into fantastic sculptural and artistic works of various graceful shapes, both familiar and strange to human beings.  Amidst these islands one can  feel as if they were astray in a petrified legendary world.
