Famous for its scenic ocean views and limestone pillars, Ha Long Bay is a world renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site in Northern Vietnam. In the past, visitors used to primarily experience the popular destination on cruise ships. But thanks to the Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group, tourists can now hop onboard a record setting aerial tram.

The 2,165m long ropeway, known as the Queen Cable Car, opened for passenger service on June 26, 2016 and was designed with two massive double-decker cabins. At a capacity of 230 persons each, these are the world’s largest ropeway cabins — holding 30 passengers more than the previous record holder in France.

If that wasn’t impressive enough, the cable lift was built with two soaring concrete towers on each side of the bay to provide passengers with sweeping aerial views. The smaller tower stands at 123.45m while the taller tower stands at 188.88m — 75m higher than the former tallest ropeway tower in Austria.

With this new cable car, the experience for Ha Long Bay’s 7 million annual tourists will never be the same. For more information, click here.
