Halong Bay‘s sunset praised on CNN


Thanks to its unique beauty, Halong Bay was selected as one of Asia’s top five tropical island paradises which possess the most beautiful sunset.

With this spirit of maritime adventure in mind, CNN asked Herman Ho, Boat Asia 2012 managing director, and Stuart McDonald, founder and editor of Asian travel website, travelfish.org, to give the lowdown on Southeast Asia's most spectacular coastal spots. Vietnam’s Halong Bay was selected in the list of top five tropical island paradises.

Halong Bay in northwestern Vietnam is one of the most stunning boating destinations anywhere in the world, says McDonald.

Comprising a vast coastal waterway of roughly 2,000 islands spread over an area of 1,500 square kilometers, carving out your own sailing space shouldn't be too much of a problem. While tranquil waters year round make sure going for a swim is always a pleasure.

The mysterious limestone caves on Halong Bay's bigger islands and the "incredible sunsets" meanwhile are two sights not to be missed, advises McDonald.

Other tropical island paradises includes Indonesia’s Anambas islands, Thailand’s Koh Chang, Malaysia’s Langkawi and Thailand’s Similan Islands.
