Here’s a few more snaps from our little cycling tour around Viet Hai village and the surround area.
Due to its isolated location the village feels a little like a trip back in time with traditional ways of life still in existence.
Located deep in the Cat Ba National park, the area is engulfed in lush, green jungle.
But despite being very remote, the villagers have embraced the concept of eco-tourism and you can stay in one of several home stays in the area.
We have a enjoyable (if somewhat panic striken) cycle around the village and the surrounding countryside before heading back to the boat.
This has to be one of my favourite photos so far as the scenery is just stunning!
