  • Description


    Hi, everyone

    So I came to Cat Ba as a workaway, but now I've decided to start my tour company on the beautiful Cat Ba island.

    My aim is to help train young locals to work in the tourism industry on the island and ensure that the island benifits from future development.

    Your job is to buddy with a local Vietnamese worker and help them improve their English and customer service skills or you can join one of our local guides and learn more about Cat Ba, Lan Hay Bay, Ha Long Bay and Vietnam in general while teaching them English, French, German or any other language that will help them to provide guests with a better understanding of the island.

    So the main thing is to enjoy the island and then tell the world how much you have.

    You will also be able to help the staff learn a new language, get to know the local employee you're paired with while learning new customs and if you're vegan or vegetarian help our chefs understand how to cook vegan and vegetarian food.
