NDO – Vietnam’s Ha Long bay in the northern province of Quang Ninh has attained a position amongst the 50 most beautiful natural wonders around the world by US-based website Insider.

In an article published on July 2, the newspaper said natural wonders come in all shapes and sizes. From China's Tianzi mountains to the Verdon Gorge in southeastern France, there are incredible places all over the planet.

The article added that Ha Long Bay's natural beauty makes it one of Vietnam's number one tourist sites. The bay is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.

It also suggested the best way to see Ha Long's awe-inspiring limestone towers is by boat, revealing that many tourists stay overnight on a boat in the bay.

The list also honours other natural wonders in Asia, including the Tianzi mountains, the Red Beach, the Zhangye Danxia Landform Geological Park, and the Stone Forest (China), the Chocolate Hills of Bohol Island (Philippines), Mount Fuji (Japan), Tegalalang Rice Terrace (Indonesia), and Jeju Island (the Republic of Korea).

Previously, Ha Long Bay made it into the Insider’s list in 2019 of the top 35 beautiful natural wonders of the world.
