    Apologies to the all those who messaged us since setting this account up, we wasn't quite ready for a work away.. But now we are :) Please ignore the terrible reply rate and give us a go :)

    We are a new restaurant, bar and hostel which is currently under construction and need help with furniture projects, art projects, web development, graphic design and help supporting out Vietnamese staff.

    Our main focus will be on healthy, locally sourced food. Then we aim to have live music from visiting artist from all over the world.

    It will be a laid back, creative space where locals and visitors can enjoy everything Cat Ba has to offer.
