Cat Ba

Islands · Kayaking & Canoeing · Caves
The largest of the islands in the south of the bay, Cat Ba offers a base for exploring the many limestone landmasses across the UNESCO-protected bay. The main town devotes itself almost exclusively to tourism these days, with a number of hotels used as an overnight stop by tour companies taking travelers around Ha Long Bay. The overdevelopment of the town aside, Cat Ba attractions come wild, rugged, and untouched. The jungles inland provide a habitat for the gravely endangered Cat Ba langur, and a wealth of mangroves, caves, and beaches--on the main island and on the smaller ones that surround--deserve exploration. Our Vietnam online vacation maker allows you to plan your trip to Cat Ba and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay in Cat Ba

Though the archipelago as a whole has a reputation for being less touristy than the areas to the north, you wouldn't be able to tell as much by seeing the main town of Cat Ba. The town represents the most popular place to stay, with a number of budget hotels lining the waterfront, and some more exclusive resorts set a short way out of town, filling the space with pools, spas, and restaurants. Many people come here as part of a tour, so accommodations will already be arranged. Some tour boats bring visitors to the hotels on Cat Ba, while others lay anchor for the night, with guests sleeping in cosy cabins aboard the ship.
