Halong Bay's spectacular limestone islands--nearly 2000 of them--stretch to every horizon from the top of Dao Titop, an island that has a staircase leading up the steep slopes to an overlook at the top. This is an unparalleled oceanscape for exploring by chartered junk and kayak. Hidden floating fishing villages in quiet bays have been occupied for hundreds of years. Small shrines can be found in small coves and beaches. Many islands have caves that open into internal lagoons.

    Thanks for your comments! This panorama was made with a Canon Powershot SD890 IS. It was my first visit to Vietnam and Halong Bay. You'll find three more made from the trip on my Gigapan page.

    This is a great panoramic. Are you in this area often? Which camera did you use to take this?
