In Vietnamese, Halong means “descent of the dragon.” Legend has it that Halong Bay was created by a mother-dragon and her children, who came down from the sky to help the Vietnamese people fight against the invaders. Some say that the dragons spat out the islets to block enemy ships. Others say that after completing their mission, the dragons were so attached to the Vietnamese people that they took up residence in the bay. And it is true that seen from the sky, the mountains that dot the bay may look like the wavy body of a dragon.
