Bai Tu Long National Park is one of the new destination for Halong bay tours

Bai Tu Long Bay of the submerged dragon, which boasts 3000 craggy and towering islets, is among the most picturesque places in Vietnam. The fantastic beauty of the bay has given rise to many legends, some of them dating back to the ancient past.
Located east of Halong Bay and closer to the Chinese border, Bai Tu Long Bay is an off-the-beaten-track destination recently in high demand among international tourists. While possessing a similar landscape with the core Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay features clearer water and less-touristy attractions.
History legend, millions of years ago when Vietnam was conquered by invaders, the Jade Emperor sent the Mother Dragon and her child to help the people. After winning, the dragons did not return to fairyland but decided to stay on earth. The place where the Mother Dragon descended is now called Halong Bay, while Bai Tu Long Bay is where the Young Dragon descended.
