Ha Long Bay among 10 most popular Asian attractions

The South China Morning Post has included Vietnam's Ha Long Bay in its latest list of 10 most popular Asian attractions.

Citing data collected by leading airport bus company Hoppa, the newspaper said the UNESCO heritage site in the northern province of Quang Ninh came in fifth among 10 most popular Asian gems, which was topped by the Great Wall of China. Mount Fuji in Japan came in second on the top 10 list, followed by China's Forbidden City and India's Taj Mahal.

Around 5.2 million foreigners visited Ha Long Bay last year, up 22 percent from the previous year. The boom in foreign tourists in Ha Long is attributed to major infrastructural improvements that have made it easier for foreigners to visit the world-famous bay, according to the newspaper.
