VietKings nominates four top spots in VN
The Vietnam Record Organization (VietKings) has nominated four special destinations for a list of the 100 most attractive destinations in the world.Son Doong Cave in the Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park
They include Halong Bay in Quang Ninh Province, Trang An - Bai Dinh tourist complex in Ninh Bình Province, Son Doong, the world’s largest cave in Quang Binh Province, and the Cu Chi Tunnels in Ho Chi Minh City.
Vietkings will present documents to the World Alliance Records for consideration. The General Council of the World Alliance Records will meet in New Delhi in September to approve the list of the top 100 attractive destinations.
Development has not been kind to Halong City (Bai Chay). Despite enjoying a stunning position on the cusp of Halong Bay, this is a gritty town with pockets of bland high-rise hotel development dotting the shoreline.Halong Bay
Many travellers opt to skip Halong City completely, preferring to spend a night out in Halong Bay itself. Increased competition for a dwindling clientele means budget hotel rates are some of the cheapest in Vietnam. Chinese and Korean visitors are now more prevalent, preferring to enjoy terra firma attractions like casinos and karaoke after a day exploring the bay.
