The highlights of the North East are its beautiful scenery that includes Halong Bay with its over 3000 islets; Cao Bang with Ban Gioc waterfall and Ma Phuc Pass... Ba Be national park is nice place for bird watching, home stay, boating on the largest lake of Vietnam.... The North East region is characterized by limestone geology, so it has a countless number of sugar loafs, karstic peaks, and caves. The entire region is very rural, and except for HaLong Bay, it is visited by very few tourists. It is populated by a number of ethnic minorities ( also refered to as hill tribes, or Montagnards), although they have been more assimilated here than in the more remote North-West.
