DISCOVERY HALONG BAY – LAN HA BAY
3 days 2 nights
Dear Honored Guest!
On behalf of Rosy Cruise, we would like to welcome you to our property. We are honored that you have chosen to stay with us and look forward to providing you with a memorable experience.
For our itinerary, it is unique and different, we will take you to the less-visited and more enchanting scenery including many unique destinations such as: Three Peaches Beach Area, Dark & Bright Cave (for 2D1N), Viet Hai Village (for 3D2N).
Being called “A forgotten Eden”, Lan Ha Bay shows its unique beauty and character in green flora and limestone, covering the entire area of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will see endless spectacular rock formations rise out of mirrored jade-green water. These are pristine places with unique ecosystems that are not yet frequented by the usual tourist crowds.
Viet Hai is a small village in the midst of jungles, covered by high mountains range of the Cat Ba National Park, which belongs to Cat Hai district of Hai Phong city. A few years ago, Viet Hai was absolutely separated from the outside world. The local residents lived their self-supply life as the primitive human of thousand years ago. Because of this cultural practice, foreign visitors to this village increase gradually. In recent years, together with the recognition of Cat Ba Archipelago as the UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, thousands of tourists have trekked through the mountains, jungles, springs to visit this unique attraction. They are interested in this wild area in the midst of the Biosphere Reserve, the Cat Ba National Park.
