In terms of cultural factors, there is the Cai Beo site, which was inhabited by ancient Vietnamese thousands of years ago. Those values ​​make Lan Ha Bay unique compared to other bays in the world.


Lan Ha Bay features 139 white-sand beaches that are both gorgeous and clean. The calm water and gentle waves make this an ideal swimming spot. Underneath the turquoise sea, magnificent coral reefs such as those found in Van Boi and Van Ha are worth a dive. If you want to learn about the bay, it will take a few days, but if you don't have that much time, you can ask boat owners for recommendations.
