Small, yet beautiful- Cat Ba is an island attracted by many local and foreign tourists especially during the summer. A sheltered bay and sandy coastlines make this island more attractive, and here is a list of things to try out if you make a visit.
A hike to the Cat Ba national park
Half of the Cat Ba island is covered by a thick jungle, and a hike will surely expose you to a variety of flora and fauna. The hike will not take more than 2 hours to complete, but that’s depending on your physical fitness.
A swim in the Cat Ba beach
Cat Ba has some beaches which you can visit for an evening swim followed by a short nap on the sands. If you ever wonder about places for accommodation in Haiphong, note that this should not pose as an issue at all, due to the numerous hotel options in the area. Somerset Central TD Hai Phong City is one such hotel that is in high demand by visitors to Cat Ba and if you are considering a long stay, this will be a good choice.
Going on a cruise
From Cat Ba, you may start cruises to hundreds of islets and beaches in the Lan Hay Bay. These cruises can either be of a single day or can go for 2-3 days based on your preferences.
A trip to Cat Ba hospital cave
Although it’s all dark and damp, the Cat Ba hospital cave is a place to visit if you want to explore the Vietnamese history. This will just be a tour of 30 minutes, so it’s quick and quite worthwhile.
