The emerald waters of Halong Bay, the limestone islands dotting the seascape, and the boats cruising the serene water is a scene that is truly out of this world. Nicknamed the Eighth Wonder of the World, this UNESCO site is one of Vietnam’s most popular tourist destinations and it is no wonder why! Opt to cruise along the tranquil water on a Bay Cruise with Maika Tours, or if you’re looking to explore a lively Vietnamese hub, Hanoi’s City Tour is a fantastic opportunity to see how the locals live in this picturesque, and sometimes chaotic, capital.
