NDO – According to Hai Phong Portal, Vietnam’s beautiful Lan Ha Bay located in the northern port city of Hai Phong has been officially made a member of the World’s Most Beautiful Bays Club (MBBW).

In a letter recently sent to the City People’s Committee, the Chairman of MBBW read, that their board of directors have approved the appraisal report and received a 100% vote to nominate Lan Ha Bay.

Held annually,the recognition of members of the MBBWAssociation takes place at the General Assembly Meetings. This year, the meeting is expected to take place in Morocco.

However, the MBBW will try to present the certification for Lan Ha Bay in May 2020, on the occasion of the 2020 Red Flamboyant Flower Festival and the 65th Anniversary of Hai Phong Liberation Day.

Positioned in the east of Cat Ba Island, the northern city of Hai Phong, Lan Ha Bay has become a tourist magnet thanks to its unique beauty and scenery.

Linking Ha Long Bay of Quang Ninh province with Cat Ba archipelago, Lan Ha Bay is like a silk ribbon made from green mountains, blue seas and diverse fauna and flora. It is a tranquil, curved body of water featuring roughly 400 unique islands.

Unlike Ha Long Bay, all 400 islets in Lan Ha are covered with vegetation with each with their own characteristics and landscapes.

Lan Ha Bay spreads more than 7,000 hectares, including 5,400 hectares under the management of Cat Ba National Park.

Aside from beautiful beaches, its attractiveness also lies in limestone mountain ranges that divide the sea into smaller bays, lagoons and caves, many of which have yet to be explored.
