One of the most exciting activities that you do not want to miss out while in Cua Van is kayaking.

It is the chance to experience moments in the life of the local fishermen who were born on the emerald-colored sea.

The serene Viet Hai Village, Cat Ba Island

Guests can get a first look at Viet Hai Village, a small village nestle in the heart of Cat Ba National Park with Bhaya Cruises’ in-house tour guides while touring a Vietnamese ancient house and learn about “Viet Hai Community Farm” & “Save the Langurs”, two of Bhaya Cruises’ corporate social responsibilities projects. While in Viet Hai, you can emerge in the local life.

Things to do

Tai Chi on Sundeck

Rejuvenating the body and spirit with a refreshing Tai Chi lesson as the sun rises over the acclaimed UNESCO Heritage Site is one of the relaxing experiences that passengers have. Practicing this beautiful art regularly can help treat a number of human ailments.

Bike in the serene Viet Hai Village

Viet Hai is perhaps the most significant destination that guests are able to visit. It takes about 4 km from the port to the village gate and there are many ways to reach Viet Hai: walking, biking, or paying for a round-trip seat on a trolley. The most suggested transportation is biking because it allows you to watch the path to the village according to your own speed and does not cause too much sweat. The surrounding is absolutely serene with clear air.
