Photographer's Note

as the legend tells; to save the Vietnamese from the wrath of the Chinese invaders, God had sent a family of dragons to help defending. so these dragons had helped vietnamese to save their lands from chinese force, by forming these small islands as a great wall blocking the invaders way. after seing this adorable place, the dragons have decided to stay here. the mother dragon was named Ha Long, its where the name comes from. and the isles are said to be formed as the traces of dragons, wandering through the bay in those days. now its stated as a world heritage by UNESCO.
