Now, in the 21st century, it is universally acknowledged as an unmissable corner of Vietnam. Indeed, the site ranks as the #1 tourist attraction in the country. The Vietnamese say if you haven't seen Halong Bay, then you haven't seen Vietnam.
In 1994, it was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and the bay has also been shortlisted as one of the world's new Seven Natural Wonders.
For visitors, each season presents a different Halong Bay: blue skies, sunshine and swimming in the summer, warm days with possible refreshing showers in the evenings; misty, atmospheric and mysterious in the winter. It continues to attract and inspire in the 21st century, with writers and photographers flocking to capture its natural beauty, but perhaps Ho Chi Minh was right after all. In truth, to truly grasp and appreciate its wonder, you really must see it with your own eyes.
