Natural beauty: Ha Long is special partly due to the important vestiges in the formation and development of the earth’s history. It also connets closely with the development of history. There are many place-names, such as Van Don where the well-known trading post was built in, Bai Tho Mountain where the autographs of celebrities were recorded and Bach Dang River where two naval battles of the army and the people who fought against Nguyen-Mong happened. We would have a feeling of being lost in a fairy land when visiting hundreds of islands such as La Vong Island, Dau Nguoi Islet, Thien Cung Cave, Dau Go Cave and so on.
