  • i arrived at the lodge in the late afternoon, as the wind swept through the mountains and the sky was stained the deep gray of approaching night. It was too late to go on an ambitious hike, so we opted for the “Waterfall Hike,” which was described as a picturesque 30-minute walk to see a nearby waterfall.

  • I have been to Cat Ba several times, but i always found a new Cat Ba each time i am there. From the moment I start my trip at the boat pier i start feeling special. I admire the magnificent of the sceneries, i enjoyed the variety of activities from beach, bay cruising, canoeing, kayaking, trekking, biking, mountain climbing... I feel like home at the friendliness of the local. The local food is so fresh and delicious...

  • Loved this place. Locals were very kind and not at all pushiy. Great accommodation, lots of activities, amazing scenery. Prices for food, accommodation, beer and pearls are the cheapest we found in Vietnam. Great for motorcycle touring, kayaking, climbing, swimming and site seeing. i will definitely be back!!!!

  • Although it was a bit overcast and chilly, the island was a lovely and peaceful retreat for a few days. It's quiet, especially compared to the hustle and bustle of Hanoi, there's great seafood on offer in the restaurant, the island is beautiful and has some cool attractions (Cat Ba National Park, Cannon Fort and Hospital Cave, to name a few), and Lan Ha Bay is definitely worth coming to the island to take a boat tour around. You can take tours of Ha Long Bay out of Hanoi, but Lan Ha is less touristy and still stunning.

  • Cat Ba island is great. Whether you're looking for hiking, kayaking, motor biking, day sailing, exploring historic sites, or just relaxing on the beach, there's a little something for everyone. It's a primary gateway to Halong Bay, and well worth spending a day or two on Cat Ba before you cruise Halong Bay.
