Ha Long venue for Valentine's Day

QUANG NINH (VNS) — Ha Long Bay in the northern province of Quang Ninh ranked 10th in the list of top 10 Valentine's Day retreats, according to the National Geographic.

The US-based travel magazine reported that Ha Long Bay, containing more than 1,600 islands, is a vision of astonishing beauty.

The magazine suggested visitors to book an overnight cruise to watch the islands' limestone pillars, caves, and arches become steeped in rich oranges and purples at sunset and veiled in an ethereal morning mist at sunrise.

The other nine Valentine retreats were the Classical Gardens of Suzhou (China), Istrian Peninsula (Croatia), The Lover's Walk (Cinque Terre, Italy), Effel Tower (Paris, France), Hotel Kakslauttanen (Saarielka, Finland), British Pullman Train (United Kingdom), Covered Bridges (Vermont), Sedona (Arizona), and Post Ranch Inn (Big Sur, California). — VNS
