During the year 1937, a Swedish archaeologist named Anderson, together with two French archaeologist sisters named Conani, travelled for months through Ha Long sea. They climbed mountains, visited caves and explored the coastline, finding many stone artifacts including axes, grinding tables, sewing needles and jewelry.


Halong Bay is host to two ecosystems: a tropical, moist, evergreen rainforest ecosystem; and a marine and coastal ecosystem.

With an increasing tourist trade, mangroves and seagrass beds have been cleared and jetties and wharves have been built for tourist boats. Local government and businesses are taking note of problems and many measures have been taken to lower tourism affect to the bay environment for sustainable economic growth


The application of bio-toilet technology and wastewater treatment system ub Halong Bay will help improve the water environment by preventing water leakage from the cruise boats to the marine environment, avoiding water sources pollution by separating human waste treatment system and the mixed wastewater system.

Halong Bay, with numerous small mountains placed with sea basins creating distinctive landscapes, has been recognized as a UNESCO world cultural heritage twice. However, the strong growth in Halong Bay has been causing apparent negative impacts on the environment, such as water pollution.
