Halong City

Halong City in Quang Ninh Province of Vietnam is a quiet but blossoming town right in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Halong Bay.

Quite laid back from other touristy cities, the roads are wide and without traffic (maybe peak season is different).

Apart from popular Ha Long Bay cruises, it also offers beach activities, nature treks, local food and night markets.
