Ha Long Bay , Vietnam 

 Ha Long Bay, Vietnam is a beautiful quiet spot around the northeastern side of Vietnam. The title (Ha Long) means “descending dragon,” which has been its long time meaning since this island was discovered sometime around (2500-1500 BC). With its thousands of limestone mountains, little island with clear crystal blue waters, and it’s beautiful preserved rainforest, this island is home to less than 2000 people. This beautiful island is definitely one that should be discovered!
