Bai Chay Beach Highlights

Hong Gia Park is a large colonial mansion on Bai Chay Beach. It houses the Vietnam Cultural Theatre, which hosts traditional music and folk dances in the evening. Shows are scheduled at 19:30, 20:45 and 21:45.

If you want to learn about Vietnam’s history, make sure to visit the Antique Museum. It has a large collection of artefacts, including two tombs from the Han and So dynasties. There are also displays of Bat Trang porcelain and pottery, and Champa wooden sculptures. It takes about 4 hours to get to Bai Chay by car, so we highly recommend staying a night or two if you want to enjoy a tropical holiday in Hanoi.
