Five-star dining ... in a Vietnam cave

February 8, 2011 |  6:00 am

Leave it to our friends in Travel to find this offbeat dining destination:

Halong Bay, about 100 miles east of Hanoi, is in the running for inclusion in the global campaign  New7Wonders of Nature. What's so special about Halong Bay? Not only does it have nearly 2,000 limestone islands, many of them are hollow, with massive caves. Several operators offer excursions on the bay, but Emeraude Classic Cruises says it offers something a little different: dinner.

"Halong Bay from the deck of the ship is an incredible sight," said Kurt Walter, general manager of Emeraude. And "viewing it from the interior of Drum Cave is a once-in-a-lifetime experience."
