Ha Long is literally translated as “Bay of Descending Dragons.” Prior to the 19th century, this name wasn’t listed in any document or archive. After mentioning the present-day Quang Ninh Sea or Ha Long Bay, older historic books often referred to them by the titles of An Bang, Luc Thuy or Van Don. Not until the late 19th century did Halong Bay’s name appear on a French Marine Map. “The Hai Phong News”, a French paper of the time, had an guide, “Dragon seems on Ha Long Bay”, reporting the following story: In 1898 a sub-lieutenant named Lagredin, captaining the “Avalanse” reported seeing a massive sea snake on Ha Long Bay. Many of the crew witnessed this. Thus emerged this Asian dragon’s European image. Whether that look of a strange animal looking like a dragon caused the title of Ha Long Bay isn’t understood (Reference Quang Ninh: Art and Culture printed in 2002).
