Red River among world's top eight greatest for cruising

Deborah Stone and Nick Dalton, co-authors of the book The World’s Great River Journeys, have named Vietnam's Red River among the eight unmissable river trips worldwide, according to an article on UK's Daily Mail newspaper.

The authors stated in the article that typhoons and torrential summer rain have partly contributed to the terracotta tones of the Red River. They suggested visitors take a Pandaw cruise trip, which allows tourists to sail the river and its tributaries Lo and Da, spend a day in Hanoi, and stop at villages, and enjoy two days on Ha Long Bay.

Visitors were also recommended not to miss the swimming experience on the bay. Other names on the list include Murray River, Columbia River, Sava River, and Dnieper River.

Hanoi is ranked 12th among the 25 best global destinations in 2018. Popular destinations in the capital include the Mausoleum of President Ho Chi Minh, the Temple of Literature (Van Mieu – Quoc Tu Giam), the Hanoi Old Quarters, Thang Long Imperial Citadel, Hoan Kiem Lake and Ngoc Son Temple.

Meanwhile, Ha Long Bay literally “descending dragon bay” is a must-see destination in the northeastern province of Quang Ninh. The bay spans 1,553 square kilometres and includes 1,969 islands of various sizes. It was twice recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994 and 2000.
