(Notice: There’s no ATM on this island, everything you pay by cash so make sure having enough cash before you come. Because a lot of our customers, after visiting the island wanted to extend their stay but found out there’s no ATM for them… So, if you don’t have a fixed plan to come back, you can bring a little extra money in case you want to stay longer)
Some more information about Bai Huong:
About Bai Huong: It is a small fisher village of about 450 people. However, you can still experience real Vietnam, nobody tries to sell you something but people are friendly, because they are happy that you are visiting their village. Moreover, they don’t speak English, some do a little bit, but they will try to communicate with hand and feet with you.
If you go swimming in the village, the girls should wear shorts and t-shirts as the people are not used to bikinis, it would be uncomfortable for both side.
The homestay families can organize tours to the waterfall, snorkeling tours and fishing tours for you, just ask them.
Best time of year to go to Bai Huong:
The best time is between March and September as the weather is stable and the sea not too rough. However, during winter/raining season (October to February) it’s difficult and often impossible to go to Cham Islands. Because, the sea is too rough and the weather changes very quickly. Watch out, if you go you might be stuck for a few day on the island!!!
Please note well:
The weather can change very quickly in South East Asia and depending on the weather and sea conditions the boats sometimes can not go to the island. Therefore, there is always the chance to get stuck on the island. We are not taking any responsibility in these cases. However, the homestay families offer 50% discount on the room night for who is stuck on the island.
