Hanoi – Halong – Cat Ba Island – Hanoi (01 night on boat, 01 at hotel)

(3 days, 2 nights)

Cat Ba, with its pristine and majestic beauty, is well-known as The Gemstone of The gulf of Tonkin. We can reach Cat Ba Island from many different direction. However, from Haiphong, it only takes a hour to go to Cat Ba via high-speed boat. This famous splendid island is really worth-visiting destination, with smoothy sandy beach, the 600-ha-National Park and the ideal ecological environment. With only one trip, you will have a chance to meet two of the most beautiful tourist attractions in the North of Vietnam. One is Ha Long Bay – the Natural World Heritage, and the another is Cat Ba Island – the amazing landscape site. The whole tour is a great harmony of the stunning white sand, the pure sapphire-blue water and the spectacular beauty of grotto systems.

DAY 02: HA LONG – LAN HA                                                                                      (B, L, D)

After having breakfast, we will transfer to another boat for exploration in Cat Ba Island. We can go trekking in Cat Ba National Park or biking around the beautiful forest roads. In the afternoon, we will go kayakking around Lan Ha Bay, with a plenty of time for swimming on beach and visiting Monkey Island. Regardless of its small or big size, the islands here are covered by the green color of trees or vegetation. Limestone mountains take the large proportion in the Lan Ha bay’s islands, cutting the sea surface into smaller bays. You can go kayaking, swimming and snorkeling in the pristine natural beach lapped by the turquoise water or sunbathe on one of the natural secluded beaches.

Your dinner will be served at 7.00 pm after check-in registration at your hotel, following by free time for your leisure in Cat Ba Town.
