Ha Long Bay in Vietnam’s northern province of Quang Ninh has been named by US-based National Geographic magazine in its list of “Top Ten Valentine’s Retreats” for this year.
It describes the bay thus: “Containing more than 1,600 islands, Ha Long Bay is a vision of astonishing beauty.
"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.”

Some others in the list are Sedona and Covered Bridges Vermont in the US, the British Pullman Train in the UK, Hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland, Eiffel Tower in France, the Lover’s Walk (Via Dell’Amore) in Italy, the Istrian Peninsula in Croatia, and the Classical Gardens of Suzhou in China.
