Share the same legend
Legend has it that when Viet people is finally united into a nation, the country was attacked by foreign invaders through where Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay are to be seen today. Jade Emperor then sent a mother dragon and its babies to help the country defense itself. The dragons blew out myriads of pearls and gems that turned into thousands of mountains on the sea as stone walls shielding Vietnam.The ships crashed into stone islands while they were moving quickly. After the foreign invaders were beaten off, the dragons decided to not return to heaven and stay in the lower world. The land where the mother dragon landed was then called Ha Long and the baby dragons landed at a place called Bai Tu Long.

And no less spectacular
Covering a total area of 15,000ha, there are hundreds of islands and hundreds of kilometres of coastline with white sandy beaches like those in Minh Chau, Quan Lan, Ngoc Vung and Son Hao. Bai Tu Long Bay’s beauty lies in its limestone caves and historical sites such as Van Don pier, Tinh Hai pier, a citadel from the Mac dynasty on Ngoc Vung Island and Quan Lan Mountain on Quan Lan Island.

Other than a string of splendid limestone mountains, the eco-system in Bai Tu Long is highly diverse with typical ecosystems such as mangrove forest, coral reef, tropical forest ecosystems; all remain untouched. Bai Tu Long National Park, therefore, is considered a priceless national treasure.
