Halong Bay
( JR. Álvaro González )
Halong Bay in the Quang Ninh province of Vietnam, about 100 miles east of Hanoi, is on the short list of finalists for possible New7Wonders of Nature, a global campaign to elect the official new seven wonders of nature. The seven will be named on Nov. 11. Halong Bay has nearly 2,000 limestone islands — many of them hollow, with massive caves. There are several operators offering up excursions on the bay, but Emeraude Classic Cruises says it offers up something a little different.

One of the highlights of my last year's trip to  Vietnam.  Always wanted to see if, after that romantic scene in the film "Indochine", starring the ageless beauty Catherine Deneuve.
