Sail away on Arcady's rustic boat to the quieter part of the Gulf of Tonkin - Lan Ha Bay. In addition to enjoying kayaking at the less-touristed part of Halong Bay area - Lan Ha Bay, you'll also head to Cat Ba Island to visit Hospital Cave on Cat Ba Island. Hospital Cave is well-known for being a secret bomb-safe shelter and safe house used by the Viet Cong leaders during the Vietnam War - the shelter was built inside a cave, high up on one of the many limestone karsts which dominate the island. When you are not admiring the views or partaking in the many activities you will enjoy delicious Vietnamese Cuisine with fresh seafood and vegetarian options. And if you like what you eat - you can also learn how to make it by participating in the pho paper roll making class.
