Overview :
Three days exploring Van Don Island district Van Don is an island district which is 50km from Ha Long (Quang Ninh province). It comprises two main island complexes: Ke Bao and Van Hai with hundreds of island spreading within the beautiful bay of Bai Tu Long. Van Don embeds Bai Tu Long Bay – the amazing geologic – geomorphic values and the ecological diversification make the island complex as splendid and marvelous as Ha Long Bay complex. Van Don possesses a grandiose natural landscape with many beautiful beaches (like Quan Lan, Ngoc Vung) and mysterious grottoes which have grasped the attention of domestic as well as foreign tourists. Van Don is not only known as a cruise and water related attraction with more than 600 islands of different sizes and interesting beauty spots, but it also attracts tourists for its historical and cultural value (this had once been one of Vietnam’s most developed commercial port).
