Bai Chay which is a beautiful large beach near Ha Long bay has a long sand. Every day in the early morning or late afternoon, thousands of people gather here to have a bath. At that time, the beach becomes incredibly boisterous. “Bai Chay” is associated with the different legends. According to one of them, Bai Chay is where Vietnamese people won Chinese military in the past. People said that the boat of Nguyen Mong (China) leaded by Truong Van Ho to invade Vietnam was burned and drifted on shore by Tran Khanh Du and people in the reign of Tran. Because of a number of burned boats, the northeast wind blew the fire in the west of Cua Luc. This caused the forest to be burned and then became Bai Chay.
