A day on the Banh Sua - Milk Cake island.
Located in Gold Card arc in Bai Tu Long Bay (Quang Ninh province), the island with a special name Banh
Sua or Tu Hai is so pristine, quiet, completely separate from the crowded Co To Island or Quan Lan Island
Not owning long white sandy beaches with blue water, no luxury hotels without stars and no bustling
atmosphere of the resort, the island of Milk Cake has itself a individual charactertistic. Previously, the island
is for aquaculture but now it is transforming into a tourist destination to discover.
Enjoy a day on the island of Milk Cake: 5 am, when the tide is at its lowest, is the most appropriate time for
tourists and residents to catch sea cucumbers.
After a simple breakfast, people go on a boat to the Quan Cach cave and it takes about 30 minutes . The cave had been requisitioned as a military base during the American war of the North of Vietnam destruction. There are many shapes of stalactites columns and no less beautiful than caves in Halong Bay.
At noon when the sun shining down blue waters, the boat stops at the raft houses of fishermen on the bay.
From the water, they pull up the grid filled with seafood. Come on shrimp, fish, squid, crab ... all in fresh.
We bought some fresh seafood to bring back to Milk Cake Island to have the villager processing them. A lunch platter with full of seafood is brought up soon after. Sipped a cool beer, enjoying a red crab pincers and hear the ocean waves on the sand that feel happy, extremely happy!!!
