If Halong Bay is compared to a glamorous beauty queen surrounded by reporters and followers, Bai Tu Long Bay is to an original and charming one without much public attention. Lesser known than its sister, Bai Tu long is another secret haven.

With 3,000 rocky, sky – crapping islets and white sand beaches, it is known as one of the most primitive and insightful places in Vietnam. Bai Tu Long Bay and its islands still have low population and as a result have not much developed.
