The voting process involved Russia-Vietnam Friendship Association Vice President Anatoli Pozdeev and other members of the association as well as many students from the Institute.
Before voting, Pozdeev described Halong Bay as one of the most beautiful places in Vietnam.
Pozdeev said he had visited the Bay several times to admire its magnificent and poetic beauty.
“It’s necessary to introduce Russian people to the Bay through mass media and the internet so that they would come and admire the beauty of the bay,” he added.
All participants in the ceremony voted for Halong Bay as one of the seven new natural wonders of the world.
