"Hide-away" at Vinh Thanh sea

If you say "escape", some people won’t like it as it sounds like there is something not good. I like it still, as it evokes curiosity to be discovered because going to the sea is not just swimming only!

SUP surfing and swimming for cooling off on Huong River

Previously, due to the regulations for COVID-19 pandemic prevention, many people could not come to the area of the Huong River to swim or to go jogging in the park. From our observations, people often choose the section from Da Vien Bridge to Phu Xuan Bridge on the Huong River for surfing SUP and swimming.
