Over millions of years, the limestone formations in Ha Long Bay have been shaped by different conditions and the tropical climate, creating a one-of-a-kind Karst landscape that offers a glimpse into ancient Earth history. Evidence of prehistoric human presence adds to the area's rich heritage.

The erosion of limestone has not only formed the islands but also created many caves, some of which are considered the most beautiful in the country. Hidden lakes within the islands add to the area's appeal, accessible by kayak or traditional bamboo boats through caves or tunnels.

In addition to its natural wonders, Ha Long Bay is home to floating fishing villages where people live in houses on the water, making a living from fishing and aquaculture.
