Halong Bay is a visual wonderland of 3,000 limestone and dolomite karst formations dotting a pristine bay that covers 1,500 square kilometers. Its name translates to “Bay of the Descending Dragon.” Legend has it that the bay’s landscape was formed when the Vietnamese were under attack and a dragon came down from the mountains to aid them, swishing its tail and splitting the hillsides, creating an impetus to their attackers. In fact, it is the wind and water that have been at work for a few million years, resulting in this romantic setting of rugged peaks and sailing junks that has inspired a whole genre of Vietnamese painting. Enjoy an overnight stay here aboard a traditional junk boat, including an onboard cooking demonstration and visit to Suprise Cave by sampan. It's a wonderful way to round out your visit to this fascinating region!
Begin your explorations of Southeast Asia with this wonderful pre-trip extension to Laos, spending two nights in Vientiane and two nights in Luang Prabang.

Then it’s on to Luang Prabang, a beautiful, laid-back city where the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers meet. During your time here, you’ll take in Buddhist temples, French architecture, and ancient traditions — and participate in an alms-giving with local monks.
