Viet Hai Village is still a relatively unfamiliar name for tourists. Often tourists flock to the popular destinations with bustling crowds and local people in a hurry to make money. These are places where tourists rush to keep up with the schedule for their journeys. However, Viet Hai is a far cry from this.

The village is a pristine flower nestled in thick jungle beneath towering limestone rock formations and completely removed from the bustle of Cat Ba Island. Here you will find the true lifestyle and culture of the ancient Vietnamese. The village is separated from the outside world and is a peaceful place to reconnect with nature; admire honest; hard-working people and the simplicity of their lives.

A gently winding road connects Viet Hai Port with the village. On one side there is crystal clear emerald water whilst the other side boasts vertical rocky mountains.

If you are looking for somewhere to enjoy nature the way it was 1000’s of years ago, mountains, and majestic views as well as understand the lifestyle of the Vietnamese, Viet Hai village is the place for you. No more overstimulation; none of the usual worries you might have when traveling in tourist areas; it is just you and nature.

How To Get Viet Hai? 

There are two ways to reach Viet Hai village. The first way is by trekking through the national park passing through 17 km of the forest road. The second option is to take a small junk boat from Beo harbour in Cat Ba to Viet Hai harbour. I highly recommend the second option because, not only will it save a lot of energy, it will ensure you can appreciate the landscape to the fullest extent. The boat trip to Viet Hai takes 45 minutes and you can enjoy the stunning view of Lan Ha bay on the way.

Amazing Person In Viet Hai – Loi – the dedicated Politician

During my trip, I met Loi – the Chairman of Viet Hai Committee. He impressed me with his tanned skin, deep voice and humble attitude. Although he was not born in Viet Hai, he has had an association with this miracle land for nearly 20 years. During this time Loi has contributed a lot to the beautiful Viet Hai village meaning it is quickly becoming a favorite destination with tourists who are looking for a taste of the real Vietnam.

Viet Hai was previously known only to the local community as an ancient fishing village. Viet Hai people are still living almost exactly as they were 2000 years ago. For the other people in Cat Ba, Viet Hai village was an ancient village. Home to people living in isolation and separated from the outside world. When Loi took office in Viet Hai, he wanted to improve the lives of the local people, as well as share this special part of the world with people from all over the world. It was difficult at the first as the population’s knowledge of the tourism industry was limited but over the past few years Loi has convinced the locals that their traditional way of life and natural environment can be preserved and exist along-side tourism.

Loi travelled from Viet Hai to Hai Phong countless times to secure funding to re-build the paved road from the harbour to the village. Once the road was built he then needed travel companies to bring their tourists to Viet Hai port. He built his own house using ancient tools to turn it into a place where tourists could experience the culture of Viet Hai, enabling tourists to understand more about Vietnamese agriculture.

I asked him why he chose to do this. His answer really impressed me: “I want tourists to know more about Vietnamese Agriculture and the important role its plays. I earn  nothing, but in the long term, Viet Hai will become a eco destination .Currently the only way to experience Viet Hai’s beauty is through a travel company but they will be impressed. Tourists will spread word of that beauty. More tourists will bring more income for the local people and this will improve the quality of their lives.”


Loi was right, a place is recognized as famous and beautiful when many people know and talk about it. He showed me the natural garden he planted with his own hands. He said: “Agriculture is no longer valued in Viet Hai by the people as a result of poor crop performance. I am aiming for this place to instead become a cultural destination where tourists can learn about traditional agriculture in Vietnam. I have to be a good example for people to follow.” Loi is also a member of the Cat Ba Langur conservation project, protecting the Cat Ba Langur community. By visiting Loi’s house you will have the opportunity to watch a video on the Langur and find out more about this project.

Affiliate With Nam Travel To Earn And Increase Your Travel Budget

Posted By : Duc Viet Nguyen/ 94 0

Hello fellow travellers! Thank you for taking the time to contact us! It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with you!

My name is Viet, but you can  call me Tony. Currently, I am the manager of Nam Travel Company, headquartered at 261 Nui Ngoc Street – Cat Ba town – Hai Phong – Vietnam. As a traveler myself, having met and talked with many different people, I know I can always learn something from collaborating with others. I also know that working as a team always benefits both parties more than just working alone. Therefore, we are extremely proud to announce that we have officially launched affiliate platforms, working in partnership with travelers who want to pay for their travel budget whilst travelling!

You can cooperate with us in any of 3 ways:

Option 1: Affiliate with us by referring tourists directly

We believe that people should be given fair reward for their efforts. In that spirit, for each tourist that uses our company’s services from your referral, you will receive an immediate $ 1 USD. We will have a list of partners’ names, each customer will be asked for information particularly who introduced them to our organisation. This list will be available on the website, so you can easily check your sales.

The way you choose to recommend our company is up to you: It can be through direct referrals from you but also because your media posts about our tours as well as our company

Option 2: Associate with us through campaign sales

We will send you the current tours and tour prices. You can create a sales campaign with a minimum number of customers is 10 guests / campaign.

If you do not reach the target of 10 guests / campaign, you still receive 8% of the value of the tour you sell / person.

If you achieve the goal of the campaign, you will receive 10% of the value of the tour you sell / person. If exceeding the target:


11 – 20 guests / campaign, you will receive 12%

21 – 30 guests / campaign, you get 15%

31 – 40 guests / campain, you get 18%

more than 60 guests / campaign, you get 20%


You will receive an affiliate code from us. Based on that code, we will determine the number of customers booked by you and transfer money to you after each campaign or monthly payment depending on your discretion.

For partners  who cooperate in option 2 we will collect the entire payment at the hotel. Otherwise, before the tour, you can transfer the payment for the tour to us minus your commission, depending on the commitment of our campaign.

We will follow the schedule and information you provide to take care of your guests

Option 3: Join us by creating a tour: you yourself are the tour operator

The clue is in the name, you will become a tour operator for us. We will give you the agent price of the travel services we have available including: room rates, food prices and prices of various travel services. You will plan a tour and search for customers yourself. We assure you that the price we offer is reasonable for our partners, meaning that you can make reasonably priced tours that can still be profitable and easily sold! With through this collaboration you can individually manage a tour for your customers/friends. The time and activities of the tour are completely on decided by you!

The advantage of the option is that you can actively create the price for tours that you want to sell. Contact us 5 days in advance so that both parties are well prepared to ensure the interests of our customers.

I have several guests willing to do a tour, how will Nam Travel manage a tour for me?

This is a key question for people who want to work with us. After a customer books your tour you should email their individual information including:

  • check-in and check-out dates
  • tour name
  • tour itinerary
  • name, nationality and number of guests booking the tour
  • special requests of guests (eg. vegetarian/vegan food etc.)
  • Special services included in the tour  (optional )
  • total price of the tour. Payment can be made at the hotel or through bank transfer.
