  • Have observed 4 Hours of Birds, not easy, but still some beautiful Species can photograph! Worth it!

  • There are some trails in the park so if you have more time to discover cat ba island than only seeing the bay, you can go there. On some of them guide will be useless.  more »
  • Visiting the National Park was my absolute Highlight on Cat Ba and the Surrounding area. You hike through beautiful Nature up to two Viewpoints. The View from above of the green-covered Limestone Cliffs appealed to me far more than the View from the Water.

  • Amazing park to explore by feet. We had a lovely and amazing trekking tour through the green jungle with local guide. Thanks Ethnic Voyage for a great adventure
  • This place is worth of visit. The view for me was as much ipressive as the bay). I visited viewpoint and tried the route in the jungle. It looks really wild and a bit scaring). For visiting jungle route it is better to plan journey for the whole day
  • We went to the national park on a foggy day. It was really fun, you go up the mountain for 1 hour and there's a really nice view point. There's also a cave (you have to buy a ticket in the national park first), it's very long and really cool with a lot of sections.
  • Better to go with the Short trekk. Otherwise you gonna end up with zero energy left. Its worthy to take the short trekk. I didn't find any animals instead some insects. But if you love trekking (not that big), go for it. You will have a good view from the top then.
  • This place is a paradise. The admission was 40k, parking free. We were short of time so we were able only to cover the first 2 peaks in 90-120 minutes, well worth it just for that.
