The journey to conquer the “infinity road” on the sea
During a search on the Internet, he accidentally found information about Cat Hai breakwater in Hai Phong. The purpose of this project is to break waves to prevent water flow into Lach Huyen estuary, helping ships to enter and exit the port easily. In addition, the dike system also helps prevent sand and alluvium from accreting into the channel at Lach Huyen estuary. In the future, this is a reserve space to build more ports.
This virtual living dike in Hai Phong has a total length of more than 10 km and a width of 2.5 meters.
The interesting thing about Cat Hai dike is that it only shows up when the tide is low. The embankment appeared with a road stretching out in the middle of the ocean. When the tide rises, most of this dyke will “submerge” under the sea water.
Overwhelmed by the scale of this project, Tai decided to try and find out where the final point was.
He recounted: “Experienced the feeling of walking alone on the road in the middle of the sea and challenged my limits. I went to many places, always promised myself and my friends that I would make a video about Hai Phong. – the hometown where I was born, grew up and shared unforgettable experiences and unique works here.
This video was scheduled to be filmed from July 2021, but due to the prolonged Covid situation, it was postponed to August 2022 (1 year later). He and his friends went to the breakwater 4 times but had to return immediately because the weather conditions deteriorated rapidly and his companion did not agree to continue participating.
Preparation for the trip took about a year.
In the last time, I went completely alone, after carefully studying the tide schedule and consulting with many fishermen in this area, Tai found a date with suitable water and guaranteed weather. dress.

“The challenge of “ask a stranger’s age” is what makes me step out of my comfort zone, communicate and get to know people of different ages. This also helps me to have unforgettable experiences of a youth,” shared Tran Tan Tai.
