Tuan Chau island’s name is the combination between ‘linh tuan’ (the patrolman) and ‘tri chau’ (district chief) because in the feudal time, the royal army set up a guard station here to patrol and defend the borderland. Prior to 1999, the island's residents suffered from a very modest living standard. There was no power network and no clean water. Roads were only trails and there was no mechanical means of transportation. Tuan Chau was a very poor town where fishing with very rudimentary tools is the only means of living.
The emergence of the Au Lac Company has completely changed the scenery of Tuan Chau. Living conditions have also improved since then.
Well-appointed furniture amenities make the Au Lac Resort earn its five star international rating. All rooms feature balcony toward magnificent views of Ha Long Bay.
