(Cinet)- According to the U.S. news site Business Insider,  Vietnam's Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park and Ha Long Bay are among the world's top 20 gorgeous natural wonders.

Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park lies in Quang Binh Province - the central Viet Nam. Covering an area of more than  343,000 hectares, Phong Nha – Ke Bang situated in Quang Ninh, Bo Trach and Minh Hoa districts, is 50km northwest of Dong Hoi City. Phong Nha - Ke Bang can be compared to a huge geological museum thanks to its complicated geological structure with different categories of stone including sandstone, quartz, schist, siliceous limestone, granite, granodiorite, diorite, applet, pegmatite, etc.
Ha Long Bay in northeast Vietnam, is known for its emerald waters and thousands of towering limestone islands topped by rainforests. Junk boat tours and sea kayak expeditions take visitors past islands named for their shapes, including Stone Dog and Teapot islands. According to the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), a majority of the islands are uninhabited by people due to their extremely steep nature.
