Lan Ha Bay, Cat Ba

4.6
Venture off the tourist trail and uncover the breathtaking white beaches and limestone outcrops at Lan Ha Bay. This isolated bay doesn’t tend to receive many tourist boats, meaning you’ll be able to explore the beautiful area without the crowds. Geologically, the bay forms an extension of Halong Bay, with the 300 islands and rocks best explored by kayak, yacht, or boat tours. The bay teems with sea life; thousands of species of fish and molluscs call this area home, and you should also keep your eyes peeled for seals and dolphins. When you’ve finished exploring the islands, settle on one of the white sand beaches and enjoy the scenery. Planning Cat Ba trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

    Full moon party in Hanoi on the morning of the tour end? New food each morning in the Café, etc. Train Haiphong Ben go one way on an empty dock 9000 won enough rapid boat ride to the island for a mistake. Hotel Villa is also much cheaper than the local restaurant in Hanoi, delicious food. Motorcycle ride looked around the full moon party island in the hotel to Bay day tour you can apply for a kayak ride all day millions of foreign young people and heartily and interestingly no mistake will be really fresh experience, ^^. ~ ~ blog, please refer to the river is the Pole Star rain ~ ~ ^^ a nice trip came just ...

    We took a cruise to the day on Lan Ha Bay. Attention to prices: some people on the same boat have paid 450.000vnd / pers. when we paid 520.000vnd / pers. trade. Program: departure at 09:00, boat in the Bay, kayak in the heart of the Karst, breakfast onboard, swimming, diving from the boat and snorkeling, then cap on Monkey Island for a return at 17:00. A bus will pick you up at the hotel, and back then. Despite a 30s of people on the boat, not the impression to be crammed. Available and enthusiastic Guide. Only downside: plastic, polystyrene, cans,... litter the Bay sometimes making the unpleasant experience. Overall rating: 4.5/5

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.
