Description

The Space

An ancient 22-meter fishing junk, she has a very rare particularity : she has two real sails, which allows her cruising without engine, weather permitting, whereas most other junks have decorating sails. Even more environmentally friendly, she has a system of treatment of used waters before they are rejected in the sea.

Guest Access

Oriental Sun starts from the island of Cat Ba. To reach the island from Ha Noi.

•Private car Hanoi-Haiphong and speed boat Haiphong-Cat Ba Island

Departure from your Ha Noi hotel around 6:30AM and transfer to Hai Phong, then boat from Hai Phong to Cat Ba. Return by boat from Cat Ba to Haiphong and car from Hai Phong to your Ha Noi hotel. This solution allows more time to visit Cat Ba Island.
