VIETNAM ~ Van Long Nature Reserve - Ninh Binh ~

 ... Beautiful picturesque peaceful landscape...  also called “the bay without wave” because when going on a boat, visitors will see a flat surface like a big mirror surrounded by mystical limestone forests.... they are eco-friendly boat, made of bamboo and rowed by hand ... popular with bird-watchers... this reserve is also one of the last wild refuges of the endangered Delacour’s langur, partly because the wetlands keep predators and poachers out of the bay... Thanks Manh!!【ツ】
