It was said that the name of Bai Tu Long Bay comes from a legend of Vietnamese people in a long time ago. Thousands of years ago, when Vietnamese people started to build their country, the south invader came to the country. At that time, the Jade Emperor sent Mother Dragon and her Child Dragons to help Vietnamese people fight the invader from the South. After the invaders were expelled, the Mother Dragon and Child Dragons did not return to the fairyland but stayed on the Earth. Where the Mother Dragon descended to is known as Ha Long Bay while Bai Tu Long Bay is the place the Child Dragons landing.
