Standing proudly in the southeastern edge of the Ha Long Bay, the Cat Ba island is just one of many islands that together form the Cat Ba Archipelago. Although it is predominantly recognized as a resting stop throughout many of the Ha Long Bay tours, there are many wonderful sights to see on the wonderful island, combined with plenty of immersive activities. The entire half of the Cat Ba island is a national park, which is usually included in organized tours. If you do have enough time, it would be worth your while to spare a few days to truly explore the wonders this breathtaking destination has to offer. Whether you are going to be backpacking it alone, or following a tour, make sure you give this gem plenty of your attention.

There is something for everyone to enjoy

To describe Cat Ba as fairly as possible without too many words, it is a place where everyone can find some form of entertainment. If you are an outdoorsy person, hiking through the grand national Park, with fresh lakes and mangroves at your sides is going to be an absolute treat. To truly reconnect with the nature, you absolutely cannot afford to miss visiting the Monkey Island, where you will have a chance to see monkeys roaming freely, and have a chance to feed them. If you are after historical sites of interest, the Hospital Cave should be a worth a visit, and if you just want to relax in a pleasant atmosphere, you can take a walk through the majestic promenade, or visit one of the three beaches for a quick splash. The main attraction, located just by the town is the Cannon Fort, which is easily accessible on foot. Unfortunately, not many roads are connected to the north of the island, but there is nothing of particular interest located there.

Take your time and enjoy the attractions

There are plenty of interesting activities to take up, ranging from organized hiking and rock climbing, to kayaking and sightseeing. To take breaks and prepare for your latest ventures, you can always stop at one of the restaurants to enjoy freshly prepared seafood meals, which are guaranteed to make your mouth water. Speaking of long term staying, you aren’t exactly going to find a five-star treatment, but the good news is that accommodation exists to suit nearly all of the price ranges. The more luxurious accommodation options tend to be set up near the beaches, and with a fairly large number of hotels present, it is highly unlikely that you won’t be able to find a room. If you would like to have a schedule that will allow you to visit all of the points of interest and still have enough time to enjoy exciting activities, you can easily sign up for sightseeing, boat or bike tours, which all have a unique approach to showing you the beauty of Cat Ba. And if you happen to be looking for a place to relax and unwind, The Good Bar has a strong reputation, so be sure to make a short stop, at least to taste their Vietnamese coffee.
