After a tasty buffet dinner get ready to rock the night away with our house DJ spinning the tunes late into the night! Don't forget to make a late night trip down to the beach to see the magical view of the bay's bioluminescent plankton!

For an unforgettable experience let your inner adrenalin junkie out with high speed tubing in the bay, just remember to hold on tight! In the afternoon see how high you can climb by rock climbing surrounded by the beauty of cliff karsts right over the beach, lead by our professional guides. This day is all about our awesome activities and getting ready to party the night away under the stars!


Enjoy a leisurely last morning with your beachside breakfast, go for a swim, or just nurse your hangover chilling in the sun before one last lunch before the journey back to Hanoi. If this is just the beginning of you epic adventure throughout Vietnam, let our travel team help you to plan the rest of your trip with your new Castaways crew. If it's the end of your travels, what better way to go out than with one of our legendary Downtown parties!
