Even if you have a private car from Hanoi to halong bay they stop here. It is half way the trip. Everything they sell is ENORMOUSLY overrated. Don't be tricked it is a lot cheaper on(night) markets. Food is okay, price about higher than usual...More

This pit stop on the way to or from Ha Long to Hanoi is a good rest stop. I had a bit of a tummy bug and was relieved to see lovely clean toilets. Usual tourist trap type store with cafe at the back.

Five dollars for an ice cream, two dollars for a small packet of crisps, plates 25 dollars more expensive than Hanoi. That says it all... At least they didn't charge for the toilet
