The magazine said there are never-ending reasons to travel, but many seek those awe-inspiring moments which stop them in their tracks, searching for sights that will stay with them forever.

From Canada’s sky-blue lakes to sandstone beaches in Seychelles, it added that beauty abounds in every corner of the Earth.

According to Travel + Leisure, with hundreds of jungle-covered karsts springing out of emerald green waters, Ha Long Bay is a photographer’s dream.

The magazine suggested hopping on a boat or kayak to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site’s beautiful islands and surreal cave systems.

Ha Long Bay has an area of over 1,500 square kilometres, featuring nearly 2,000 islands of various sizes to create majestic scenery.
