Nice island full of life. In Summer time it is a top destination for vietnamese people, so you will see many vietnamese families enjoying their vacation. Prices are cheaper than in mainland. Many activities for kids. Kind of marginal for foreigners...

This island is really worth the travel! We did hiking with our guide in the jungles. Hard work! Sweated like a pig! Then we were sent to a small island where you can sunbathing with monkeys! Well, they don't do that but grab your drinks...More

Hi there, I am going to Cat Ba next week by train from Hanoi and then boat (express or hydrofoil). You mentioned a bus for one hour and then a boat?? Could you give me more details and is the bus quite safe (not a twisty road) etc....this may be a better option that the train (2.5 hrs) and then hydrofoil (1hr) . Anne.

Many hotels can arrange cruise trips. We just took a local ferry from Ben Beo to Halong City which was a day cruise in itself.
As I have became attached to my motorbike I am wondering, if you can take it on the ferry to cat ba island, so I don't have to go back to Hanoi And get on a bus thanks.

If you can't take it on the passenger ferry, there is a car ferry but I don't know where it leaves from or any details about it.
