About Tra Bau Lan Ha Bay
The area of Tra Bau is located in Lan Ha Bay, in the south of Halong Bay. This area belongs to Cat Ba Island, Hai Phong Province. Being different from the bustling and dynamic tourist activities in Halong, the Bay of Lan Ha remains pristine and stunning with lots of natural highlights, and one of them is the Tra Bau area and its fishing village. The area is ideal for a one-day vacation that you discover the floating village, communicate with the local fishermen, and watch how the fishing activities will be performed. Other amazing activities include swimming, fishing, kayaking, boat competition, or even role-playing as pirates right on the Pirate Bar.
The great thing is to take numerous photographs that are cool, so-deep, and unique. This experience is more fantastic if you are going with a group of friends who are passionate about photography. It is the floating raft that is a flattering object for you all to pose and get the cool pictures at the end. The backgrounds of the emerald sea, forested mountain, and spacious green-covered islets just add spice and enhance the quality of your photographs. Whether you’re posing alone or with friends, the results will happily surprise you. Taking a selfie with the bright kayaks is also a nice idea.
