Drive and journey from Ha Long City to Cat Ba Island and enjoy the natural wonders and wondrous charm of the island in its fullest with a 3 days/2 nights’ memorable journey.
Ha Long Bay’s beauty is not only limited to its bayside area. Journeying further into the open water, you will find that Ha Long Bay’s surrounding cliffs and beautiful islands are just as beautiful as the bay. One of it is Cat Ba Island, the largest of 367 other islands that make up the Cat Ba Archipelago and spans 260 km2 in area. The island itself used to play an important role during the war back in 1979 with China and Cambodia where caves found around the island are used as a hospital stop for wounded soldiers as well. On this 3 days/2 nights’ trip, you will have full chance to explore this majestic island further.
Day 1 - Ha Long Bay (Lunch & Dinner)
The shuttle bus will pick you up at the hotel and drive you through the scenic countryside toward Ha Long Bay first thing in the morning. Heading out of town, you will continue by boat for a whole morning journey of exploring the renowned Ha Long Bay. This exciting five-hour cruise will provide you with a wondrous view of the beautiful panorama, perfect for your photo-shooting session. Ha Long Bay is also home to some 3,000 limestone islands that rise out of the clear emerald water with pride. The limestone karsts formations are littered with beaches, grottos and beautiful caves that you will visit and explore further when you arrive. Along the way, the cruise will also stop for a leisurely swim in a secluded cove and enjoy a visit to one of the many hidden grottos beneath the towering bayside cliffs. When all is done, you will finally spend the night onboard while you wait to greet tomorrow.
