What is the Haivenu?
It’s a tiny orchid that grows only on the craggy limestone cliffs of the islands in Ha Long Bay in north-east Vietnam. Its botanical name is ‘paphiopedilium concolor’, known in Vietnam as the ‘yellow slipper orchid’ after its dainty blossoms. Despite its diminutive size, it’s a determined survivor, clinging tightly to niches in the rocks faces defying baking sun and torrential rain.
We chose the Haivenu as our logo partly for its striking beauty, but mostly it expresses the qualities that we want for our company.
Like the Haivenu, we’re tenacious. Nothing is too much trouble for us: we apply the highest standards of quality to everything we do.
Having the Haivenu as our logo also reminds us of our commitment to conserving the environment of our beautiful country. We avoid ‘ecotourism’ in environmentally sensitive areas and encourage our customers to travel with light footsteps. Viet Nam is a beautiful country with a rich culture: we want to keep it that way.
We are a young Vietnam tour operator, committed to providing top-quality, personalised service and fully sustainable tourism. Our mission is to provide you with a memorable experience of the real Vietnam by avoiding the usual tourist routes in favour of unspoilt landscapes, unusual attractions and the fascination of the daily life of ordinary people. We want you to carry home the image of the Haivenu to remind you of our remarkable country – exciting, exotic, safe and friendly.
