As part of our commitment to socially responsible travel, Au Co supports an isolated village on Cat Ba Island by providing income-generating opportunities for villagers to grow organic produce in our community farm. We buy back these fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables including sweet potatoes, cucumbers, and jicama which are grown using traditional farming methods, completely free of pesticides and other chemicals, for use in our kitchens.
Time and Location
On the morning of the second day, cycle or ride an electric buggy to Viet Hai Village on Cat Ba Island where we will explore the village school and organic gardens and meet some of the locals.
Fresh vegetables can be bought directly from the community farm.
