Banh Sua island

Many of these islands are large, mountainous rocks that jut up from the bay. Other islands are large enough for people to explore. The unique arrangement of water, mountains and wildlife prompted UNESCO to name Halong Bay as a World Heritage Site. While many places can be explored thoroughly, there are some areas where visitors are restricted in order to preserve the natural habitat.
