Halong Bay is named after a dragon that descended into the sea. It came down from the mountains and as it fled to the ocean its tail dug up the land creating gorges and crevasses. When the Bay filled with water, so the myth goes, only the high land became visible. The first stop on the tour is the lovely Hang Sung Sot caves. These are cool and spacious and to enter them is akin to going into a great catherdral. There are good walking paths throughout the cave and the interplay of internal and external lights produces some startling effects and lasting impressions.
