Just east of Halong Bay and close to the border of China sits Bai Tu Long Bay. Largely untouched by tourists, the area is far away from the famous Catba Island, which houses beaches, the caves of Halong Bay and lodging. There are two ecosystems with abundant biodiversity. One area has a wet, tropical rainforest ecosystem and the other ecosystem supports marine life.
Legend has it that millions of years ago, an enormous dragon plunged into the waters of Halong Bay and left behind many eggs. When those eggs hatched, they created the numerous rocks and islands in the area. The name Halong Bay literally means "Descending Dragon." The dragon's tail is said to have extended out far into the ocean and created Bach Long Vi, which means "The Tail Of The White Dragon." Before she returned to the heavens, she said farewell to her offspring at Bai Tu Long Bay, which means "The dragon parts the offsprings." Famous attractions in the Bai Tu Long Bay area include Wuan Lan Island, the fishing village of Vung Vieng, Van Don Island and Ngoc Vung Island. The Bai Tu Long National Park is also located nearby. There are seven amphibian national parks in Vietnam and Bai Tu Long National Park is one of them. It has both aquatic and terrestrial zones.--------------------------------------------
