  • Love this place, very chilled out compared to mayhem of the city and great Base for outdoor activities and boat tours 
  • I love Cat Ba and I love Hai Phong. The island is very beautiful, fresh and peaceful. You should give it a try! 
  • It's considered as a pearl of Hai Phong with National park. The beaches are small but nice, private and natural (Cat Co1, 2, 3). Good for trekking and experiencing
