Place where the dragon descended into the sea

There is a legend that the islands, which are located near the bay were once precious stones, which spat out the dragons who came to the aid of the Vietnamese who fought against Chinese invaders. Dragons spit stones to Chinese courts, and the stones, turning to the island, smashed the Chinese invaders ships to smithereens. After the victory of the Vietnamese dragons wanted to stay in these places. Mother dragon of the family decided to settle in the bay, which has since been called the Halong. The name of which translated from the Vietnamese that means "where the dragon descended into the sea."  Similar picturesque landscapes, which remind about lives of ancient dinosaurs, can be seen in Jurassic Coast or Koekohe Beach.
