Visiting and spending time in Cai Beo, getting to know the locals, their way of life and the history of the village is an experience to remember. According to a study by the Vietnam Institute of Archeology, Cai Beo is the most important coastal and island archaeological site currently in the northeast of Vietnam. People in the area used to live off catching fish and oysters about 7,000 years ago.

Lan Ha’s inclusion in the list of the most beautiful bays in the world by MBBW in January 2020 has further boosted its profile as a vacation destination among both domestic and international visitors. Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio of the Titanic fame in May posted a 58-second video on Instagram that captures the beauty of Lan Ha Bay from above. He described this place as a "paradise". However, DiCaprio also noted that the bay was threatened by plastic waste, unsustainable tourism activities and climate change.
