The Quang Ninh Province is home to the UNESCO World Natural Heritage site Ha Long Bay and it’s this natural wonder that is a team entry and Host Port, named Ha Long Bay, Viet Nam.
Following an inaugural team entry from Ha Long Bay, Viet Nam in the Clipper 2019-20 Race, the global sailing event will return as both a Team and Host Port Partner for the 2023-24 edition of the Clipper Race.
Ha Long Bay is a stunning destination and, unsurprisingly, northern Vietnam's number one tourism hub. Towering limestone pillars and tiny islets topped by forest rise from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin, attracting millions of tourists every year to take to the water and discover the region by taking overnight boat trips.
Visitors can take cruises to lazily sail the emerald green waters among thousands of rugged islands and islets, stopping at some of the most spectacular caves, viewing impressive and centuries-old formations. Ha Long Bay's mystical beauty has made it a bucket list attraction within the country, but it's still possible to find secluded corners to call your own.
