The Jade Emperor sent Mother Dragon and her Child Dragons down to earth to help the Việt people fight against their enemy.
Right at the time invaders' boats were rushing to the shore, the dragons landed down on earth. The dragons immediately sent out from their mouths a lot of pearls, which then turned into thousands of stone islands emerging in the sea like great walls challenging the invaders' boats.
The fast boats couldn't manage to stop and crashed into the islands and into each other and broke into pieces.
After the victory, Mother Dragon and Child Dragons didn't return Heaven but stayed on earth at the place where the battle had occurred. The location Mother Dragon landed is nowadays Hạ Long Bay and where Child Dragons descended is now B Tử Long. The dragons' tails waving the water created Long Vĩ (present Tr?Cổ peninsula) and formed a fine sand beach over ten kilometers long.
The legend of Hạ Long has it that???
Hanoi is another destination that I planed to visit for such a long time.
Finally, I had decided to visit there on September 2008. Hmm... ... feel excited as looking forward to view the multi-shaped rocks, visit the dramatic caves, shop till drop at 36 ancient street, and the most desire activity - to watch water puppet show and drink PURE vietnamese coffee there!
Will update the event later.
Hanoi, don't forget our date on 22 September 2008. See you there.
