Ha Long Bay in CNN’s list of 25 most beautiful places worldwide

Ha Long Bay in the northern province of Quang Ninh has been listed among the 25 most beautiful places around the world by CNN.

The US's Cable News Network announced the list on Monday in celebration of Earth Day.

Its enduring popularity has made Ha Long Bay one of the hottest natural attractions in Southeast Asia, CNN said. Ha Long Bay, which is home to thousands of islets of hulking limestone and deep, green waters, was recognized twice by the UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage. It has been named one of the seven new natural wonders of the world. Sail on a junk boat or pick up a kayak and get lost in the quieter reaches of this vast and fascinating corner of the East Sea, CNN suggested.

Other places in CNN's list include El Nido of the Philippines, Rotorua of New Zealand, and the Maldives.
