WHAT TO EXPECT
Viet Hai Village is still a relatively unfamiliar name for tourists. Come to this miracle place, you will be stunned by a paved road that gently twists and turns between the sparkling emerald sea and spectacular mountains clad with thick, wild jungle. The village is a pristine flower nestled in thick jungle beneath towering limestone rock formations and is 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.
The tour includes a visit to the remote site of some ancient Vietnamese houses hidden amongst wild and dramatic landscape that will transport you thousands of years back in time. You can then cool off with a natural fish foot spa in a nearby natural stream and pick fresh fruit from a local orchard to savor in the shade. Having a meal in a cave behind our hostel in Cat Ba would be a truly unforgettable experience in your journey in Viet Nam
You will also be given the chance to try your hand at fishing as well as the opportunity to kayak amongst the tall rock formations that frame the mini bay near Viet Hai. Here you are free to explore at your leisure and there is plenty of time to discover the countless beaches, rocky islets as well as enjoying the stunning view of the mini bay
