Must visit in Vietnam!

We loved this island! Good food, views, massages, and people. The day trips through Halong Bay are fabulous!

What I love is you can do everything here. You can trekking, visit forest,visit caves, swim, lay on the beach. If you just need a quiet place to relax, it's a good place too.

The island isn't stunning, but there are a few great points of interest such as the national park, cannon fort, etc. It's a great place to stay for cheaper and do day trips in Halong Bay. The Main Street has lots of bar and restaurant options and there is a pretty walk to a few beaches with a walkway built... More

Felt so incredibly well rested after a weekend on Cat Ba island. I wish I had more time there. While the rest of Vietnam seems to be "go-go-go!" all the time, Cat Ba time cruises by at a steady pace. So relaxing, stunning landscape. Definitely intend to go back before my work permit runs out.

Beautiful place, out of big city noise, where you feel like home in 5 first minutes of your stay! You can rent a scooter, go trekking, for a walk, to the beach or for a boat cruise. Unreal!

This island has quite a lot of building happening at the moment, I guess because of tourism. You may see a monkey which is worth the trip to see it sitting on a local tree. We walked up the very steep hill up to the canon lookout. This will cost 40,000 dong ($2.30 approx aud dollars) harsh walk but lovely... More
