Legend

Halong literally means Descending Dragon. According to legend, Vietnam was invaded shortly after they started building the country. Jade Emperor sent Mother Dragon and her Child Dragons descending from heaven into the sea, and sprayed a thousand pearls from its mouth. From these cascading pearls, the 1,600 shaggy limestone stacks of Halong Bay emerged, a huge curvature of jumbled karst fortress designed to protect Vietnam from invaders in the Gulf of Tonkin. The location that Mother Dragon landed is then called Ha Long Bay and where Child ones descended is Bai Tu Long Bay.

Ha Long city

Ha Long City is comprised of two main towns, Bai Chay and Hon Gai, which are connected by a bridge. The former is the tourist town part of Ha Long City, while the latter is home to more of a local scene. Bai Chay has a very wide range of hotels and hosts the pier from which the Ha Long Bay tour boats leave. If you’re overnighting in Ha Long City, you’ll leave yourself in Bai Chay.
