If you care about the culture and history, this is an ideal place with hundreds of archaeological objects including fishing facilities of ancient Vietnamese people, and many documentary films or pictures about life on Halong Bay in the past and at the present. In recent times, with the policy of the People's Committee of Ha Long City, Cua Van floating village has also developed along with improvement in living standards.

There is a school was built to educate children, the next generation of the village. Although it is neither spacious nor fully equipped like those on land, it doesn’t lack pupils, that’s for sure.

As the Cua Van floating village is located several kilometers away from the coastline, it takes you much of a boat trip to reach here. Various cruising boats are available for tourists, some of which can be included in full-package tours offered by prominent tourism corporations.

However, there are two primary methods that foreign guests prefer: If you only plan to visit the village for one day, you may purchase boat tickets directly at the wharf, over the phone, or through online platforms linked to service providers. Conversely, if you desire a more extended stay lasting 2-3 days, it is best to create a detailed plan beforehand, ensuring that your group has precise information on transportation, timing, and location.

As such, many people opt for a three-day, two-night full-package cruising tour, which is considered more cost-effective than traveling independently without assistance from travel agencies.
