ABSTRACT Ha Long Bay has outstanding values of geology and geomorphology. These include the scientific values of regional geology, Quaternary geology, marine geology and karstic geomorphology. In addition there are the resource values of minerals and tourism and the ancillary values of archeology and biodiversity. Of these, the value of the karstic geomorphology is the most outstanding and unique, and plays a fundamental role in the science of karstic geomorphology. In addition to its natural landscape value, Ha Long Bay is worthy of further recognition as a World Heritage in respect of its geological value. The conservation of this heritage is, therefore, of the highest level of importance.
