  The Rest








"On a small beach between the rocks we enjoy the sun on our bare bodies. Delicious!
Marjan takes a mud bath and then rinses off her body in the sea. It is wonderful here. Experience the elements of nature with your whole body. Just paradise. It is unimaginable for the Vietnamese people that we go to the beach in their winter. For us, however, it is a temperature that makes us happy in the summer. They walk here with winter coats and hats, while the tourists all walk with bare arms and legs."

Welcome to Viet Hai

          Viet Hai Village - is located on the island of Cat ba and it is a great ecological tourist attraction. The distance to Cat Ba town is about 10 km as the crow flies, Viet Hai village is surrounded by high mountains and dense forests of the national park. We were amazed to see new five kilometer long concrete road to Viet Hai village. We had never taken this turn before. The village has only a few dozen houses, mostly hidden under the leaves, or in the back of a garden or under a green jackfruit tree.
Unlike the dynamic urban area of Cat Ba, the village of Viet Hai exudes a peaceful atmosphere. It is located in the valley of the center of Cat Ba National Park. Not many people have not heard of this place. Many have never set foot there. Therefore, Viet Hai is still a remote village and a large mystery village.

Years ago, the village of Viet Hai was almost cut off from the outside world. Everyone could reach Viet Hai in two ways:

  • the first way was to take a boat across Lan Ha Bay to the harbor of Viet Hai and then with a motorbike, or walking to the village of Viet Hai on a long forest road 5 kilometers.

  • The second way was to follow a path from Cat Ba National Park until the path turned into a small road leading to the village.

The village of Viet Hai is an authentic village, as one can find in the north of the Vietnamese. Especially compared to other villages.


Viet Hai has a unique, authentic culture. This arouses the curiosity of tourists, when they want to discover the rural life and the true nature of the people here. You can see the development of a remarkable rice culture, where the people are friendly and hospitable.


Because this area on the island is difficult to reach, the residents still have primitive life as it was hundreds of years ago. Although the village of Viet Hai is the most remote village on the island and it is very difficult to live there, people seem very satisfied with simple tools, but with a great passion for life. Above all, there is no injustice, so it is quite safe to be here.


The people of Viet Hai are still excited to turn this small village into a famous tourist paradise in the future.
Some villagers offer tourists a homestay, where they stay with a local family in a house and where you learn everything about close family ties. You will enjoy delicious home cooking and you will discover the simple lifestyle of the country. A guest is maintained by a family and shares meals with them. You will enjoy the daily activities in the village. There is internet and you can use your mobile phone.
The best time to visit Viet Hai Village is from April to September. During these months, the weather is pleasant and cool for your visit.
