July: Vietnam, Halong Bay at the caves of Hang Dau Go


Halong Bay has an area of approximately 1,500 square kilometres in north Vietnam with a 120 kilometre coastline, in the Gulf of Tonkin near the border with China, and 170 kilometres east of Hanoi. "Vịnh Hạ Long" - Halong Bay - means "Bay of the Descending Dragon" in the Vietnamese language. The bay consists of a dense cluster of nearly 2000 limestone monolithic islands, each topped with thick jungle vegetation, which rise spectacularly from the ocean. Several of the islands are hollow, with enormous caves. Hang Đầu Gổ (Wooden stakes Cave) is the largest grotto in the Halong area.
