Halong Bay is one of Vietnam’s top attractions. The name “Ha Long” translates as ‘where the dragon descends into the sea. Ha Long” is literally translated as “Bay of Descending Dragons.” Prior to the 19th century, this name was not recorded in any document or archive. When mentioning the present-day Quang Ninh Sea or Ha Long Bay, old historical books often referred to them by the names of An Bang, Luc Thuy or Van Don.
