Baùi Töû Long: pretty picture
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.
