Delicious “Gio” fish in the Lan Ha Bay

On Lan Ha Bay (Haiphong),
Far from Viet Hai wharf about only about 20 minutes by ship, there are many seafood cages located close together in an awkward stage. Of these, perhaps the most special friends throughout the Navy with “soldier”.

This is a favorite location for fishing. You can fish by yourself or after the wave of delight in sea water, friends is right up fresh seafood dishes to enjoy with friends. Worth mentioning, the service costs are quite reasonable, trip time held just two days, one night.

In a sunny day, I go quietly between fish cages, a young soldier called to weigh fish. The fish were picked up from the cage rolls, tail thrashed wildly, and mouth open as if to bite always my camera lens is pointed at it. “8kg”. And the iPhone is ready to swallow it," the other a soldier, "warning", because inherently cobia fish are voracious.

Two soldiers had just done talking fish straw, hand scaling and singing. After cleaning, the cobia own cut heads, tails and fins, then cut pieces aside to sour soup with pineapple, tomatoes and herbs. The body then filters out most lean fish to fish lemon salad. The meat is sliced, no need to put up as much stone cold salad the other, do not over- water as well as salt itself so fresh and clean.

The process is quite simple and fast under the skilled hands of some young soldier shoots. Cobia salad when eating broccoli leaves washed with mustard dots are crunchy and sweet. Part stomach and heart fish are cleaned, sliced sautéed peppers discharge. A body mass leave to other fish in the bowl, then added steamed spiced ginger, pepper and red pepper. Fish skin very soft after steaming sweet and fatty.

After a two hour swim around purge, the group returned to friends, slam rushing water bath aisle near the cage. Look at hot lunch tray, attractive dishes on the table is waiting, hearts disk fried fish and sour soup hot evaporation, fresh red chili color on the back piece of steamed fish... oh it's impossible not to delight.

I put pieces of raw fish reform swept into the mouth, sweet, slightly spicy mustard burst of light on the nose, a very special feeling, delicious and fresh.
Lan Ha Bay is located in southeast Cat Ba Island Tingle would have known this if not adjacent to a “giant” of tourism destinations: Ha Long Bay.

This is a smooth Gulf arcs with approximately 400 islands make up a huge painting depicting the scene first. Ha Long Bay is a little different though which is just like a tiny island, the island oasis of Lan Ha and covered with trees and vegetation.

Plans have been unveiled for a major new tourism and residential project on Vietnam’s east coast.

Local company Vung Ro Petroleum has joined forces with the Rose Rock Group, an investment management and real estate firm founded by members of the Rockefeller family, to create a huge new US$2 billion mixed-use resort development in Vung Ro Bay, in the Vietnamese province of Phu Yen.

According to plans, the development will divide the picturesque Vung Ro Bay into three sections: ‘The Marina’, ‘The Village’ and Bai Mon Beach, which will be connected by a 2.5km pedestrian path called ‘The Green Thread’.

The Marina will make use of Vung Ro’s natural deep water and sheltered bay to create a new luxury yachting complex comprising 350 berths, along with a waterfront hotel, retail outlets, bars and restaurants.

The Village will be the central part of the complex, offering residential accommodation and a main 650-metre-long retail street. Finally, the 400-metre-long Bai Mon Beach will be developed to offer a range of watersports and a boutique hotel.

In total the complex is expected to comprise 760 hotel rooms, 4,300 apartments and 100 townhouses, along with 200,000m² of retail, F&B, entertainment, education and healthcare facilities.

Far away from Hue city about 40km towards the east, stopping at the end of Vinh Hien commune, Phu Loc district. You will find a small mountain sides between the standing waves of the Tam Giang lagoon and the South China Sea. That is the keynote mountain; on the top of the mountain, the temple tower has a history of hundreds of years old.

According to the monks in the temple, yet it is still the old mountain named My Am Son, in which Lord Nguyen Phuc Tan in passing Tu Hien and found the charming scene where is the top of “My Am Son”. He should have chosen to establish My Am Son and to bless people safe. In the

Ancient appearance, yet it is still peaceful temple.

Over hundreds of years, yet it is still has deteriorated temples, crumbling ruins but still retain features of an ancient temple with a history of hundreds of years.

This is the original temple has hundreds of ancient trees, the temple is surrounded by primeval forest system with two -diameter tree hugging Xue three people, tangled vines. The road is hundreds of stairs steps amidst ancient trees, forest leaves empty aisle who visit the temple that feels different from the other temples.
The most interesting is the tower climb three storey tower known as Dieu Ngu, from here take the eye away from the direction can observe all the panorama of Phu Loc district, overlooking the immense grandeur of Tam Giang Lagoon, Port sea fish and Tu Hien. Afternoon, outside boats from breaking the nose had herded together to create a painting as beautiful arrangement.

A  Monk said Van Son has been placed on the national landscape, located so far from the city so rarely visits, sometimes a few new temple to welcome the delegation from the city. Currently, due to time and the inadvertent use of visitors to the pagoda system has deteriorated much.

Vong Canh Hill is a well -known landmark in Hue. On the former is a place for kings to enjoy the pristine scenery of mountains and rivers, earth should not have permanent structures are built. Here we can see the Perfume River, two tributaries from the Ta Trach and Huu Trach merged quietly along the mountainside west northwest direction to eventually sweep downstream in the stream of dollars into Hue.

The war years before 1975, SG Army turned the place into a defensive outpost west of the city. Traces the few remaining fortified bunkers that lifting them is not easy as well. Five months have gone quiet, not only for the Vong Canh Hill but this Hue. Until 2005, when the province of something 2006 joint venture with Dutch conglomerate Life Resort, watchmen exploit a resort grand scale, this time for Advent scene as a poor maiden, silent in the garb of the peasant girl ... renovations will be made to become a model world. The debate from many aspects of culture, history, economic and spiritual development, the final girl being brought home for wealthy foreigners, many of whom are not exploited but also to help relay girls beyond the village pond.
