With 4.23 out of the 5 points, Ha Long Bay is placed at the fourth position.
It follows the Hallasan National Park (the Republic of Korea), the Taroko National Park (China’s Taiwan), and the Osaka Castle Park (Japan).
The last four destinations are the Ang Thong National Marine Park and the Khao Yai National Park (Thailand), the Penang National Park (Malaysia), and the Rizal Park (the Philippines).
The list includes national parks which are suitable for outdoor activities and green spaces in the middle of cities with important historical backgrounds.

On December 17, 1994, the bay was officially listed as a World Heritage site with globally outstanding value in terms of natural landscape by UNESCO.
