Halong Bay is one of those unique parts of our planet unbelievable as we are there. Limestone forms called karsts push up vertically from the sea. Once entirely under the sea the small mountains now cover a large area outside the growing city of Halong. South Koreans are usually crowding the area, with Chinese a close second but the Coronavirus has stopped a lot of traveling in the region. For us it was magical. Very few other people in the cavern we visited. It seemed to me that there were a lot of boats, but only a percentage of normal times.
After lunch we went on a tender to a cavern where we did 600 stairs and a mess of steps in and around a massive cave.
We got back to the boat through spectacular scenes of boats and karsts.
As evening fell the colors began to shift and things became even more ephemeral.
