Bai Tu Long Bay sits to the north-east of Ha Long Bay and is the furthest away from Hai Phong, the main port of departure for those exploring the bays. Because of its more remote setting, Bai Tu Long Bay remains the least explored of the three bays. Similarly to Ha Long Bay and Lan Ha Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay still has the dramatic karst-studded bay but with fewer tourist boats. The craggy islets of Bai Tu Long Bay track the coastline all the way to the Chinese border.
