Photographer's Note

Yes, Ha Long is something quite different. Due to the slow portion of the Earth's crust under the weight of sediments, lime mounts have been submerged. The dissolution of the land caused by the encroachment of water has created there islets of fantastic shapes, and galleries, cavities and rocks carpeted with stalactites and stalagmites. Its caves, which call to mind the robbers were until 1893 refuges of pirates and rebel patriots who roamed the Red River delta down to the coast.
Long ago, there was a fish monster that used to cause violence and death among the coastal population every winter. The Fish-God, Thiên Ngu', a handsome young man riding a dragon, engaged the monster in a fierce battle that lasted the whole summer.
The dragon died of exhaustion, and its body was washed ashore at a place now called Phù Long, floated dragon.
