It’s a beach 30km far from Haiphong city center with fresh air. Not suitable for swimming because water full of silt but nice for eating with very delicious fresh seafood. Tang Hau restaurant is highly recommended for eating out.

I've been to Do Son many times, but usually just to sit near the see and drink a few beers. The water and beach usually looks pretty dirty, so the water park is the only place I go swimming. Not as nice as Cat Ba,...More
