"bay of the descending dragon"

According to legend, when Vietnam first became a country, the Vietnamese had to fight off northern invaders. The gods, feeling sorry for them, sent the Mother Dragon and her children to help them against their invaders. The family of dragons spat out jade and emeralds, which formed a barrier against the enemy and helped the Vietnamese defeat their aggressors. After the battle, the dragons did not return to the heavens but stayed in the bay and took human form to help expand Vietnam.

The jewels that the dragons spat out became the islands and islets of the bay, which was named Ha Long, meaning "descending dragon," in honor of the Mother Dragon and her children who helped defend the Vietnamese.

This myth also expresses the belief that the Vietnamese people have dragon origins.
