Why and Where

Ha Long Bay is located in the Gulf of Tonkin in the northeast of Vietnam and is made of many islands and bays. Ha Long Bay is a popular tourist destination because of the beautiful and natrual sceneries it gives such as limestone karst landforms that display pillars with a variety of coastal erosional features such as arches and caves.
I find it amazing how after being involved in wars and mining it is still such a beautiful and very natural environment. What i also found interesting was that while Ha Long Bay started becoming popular the standards in living picked up and the society became wealthier and a better place to live.
