Halong Bay in Newsweek list of 100 most beautiful World Heritage Sites

US newspaper Newsweek has ranked Vietnam's Halong Bay 14thin its list 100 most beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

"Ha Long Bay, in the Gulf of Tonkin, includes some 1,600 islands and islets, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. Because of their precipitous nature, most of the islands are uninhabited and unaffected by a human presence. The site's outstanding scenic beauty is complemented by its great biological interest," Newsweek reported. The top three sites are Cambodia's Angkor Wat, Italy's Venice, and Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
