VIDEO : Junk Boat Tour of Halong Bay
Like Khaosan Road in Bangkok, Halong Bay is a definitive destination that is or should be part of every backpacker’s and vagabond’s itinerary traveling through South East Asia. Also known as Vinh Ha Long and Ha Long Bay, the literal translation is “Bay of Descending Dragons” is located East of Hanoi in Vietnam. Halong Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site best known for the ghastly environment of the thousands of karst and islet formations that look almost alien. This video was mostly shot on a junk boat by Stephan Reiziger during his backpacking travels through Vietnam.
