Baùi Töû Long: pretty pic­ture

Outlook - - CONTENTS - By Tröông Vò

Baùi Töû Long Gulf in north­east Vieät Nam con­tains hun­dreds of small and large is­lands. Its wa­ters sur­round Haï Long City, Caåm Phaû City and Vaân Ñoàn Is­land. It is bordered by Haï Long Bay in the south­west, Caåm Phaû City in the west, and Coâ Toâ Is­land in the north­east.

The gulf and Haï Long Bay are con­sid­ered one of world's nat­u­ral won­ders. Many arte­facts from thou­sands of years ago re­veal the begin­nings of set­tled and civilised ways of life. With its beau­ti­ful is­lands and daz­zling­white sands, the gulf at­tracts a grow­ing num­ber of for­eign tourists.

The Baùi Töû Long Eco­log­i­cal Area on Vaân Ñoàn Is­land cov­ers 100 hectares and 10 kilo­me­tres of coast­line. It is be­ing pre­served with "green" ac­com­mo­da­tion based on tra­di­tional Asian ar­chi­tec­ture and mod­ern styles.

Self-con­tained stilt-houses close to the sea create an in­ti­mate feel­ing with na­ture, eras­ing the bor­der be­tween the noise of mod­ern life and the vast and lonely sea. Visi­tors ex­pe­ri­ence trea­sured mem­o­ries while en­joy­ing the slow life and eat­ing heaps of shrimps, crabs, fish and snails.

Baùi Töû Long Na­tional Park is one of Vieät Nam's sea re­serves. Ac­cord­ing to a re­cent sur­vey by Gecko Travel Tourism Com­pany (Eng­land), the gulf is one of the most won­der­ful tourist ar­eas in South-east Asia.
