Itinerary Details Day 1: Hanoi – Cat Ba – Lan Ha Bay

At around 6.30am your private transportation will pick up from your hotel to drive you from Hanoi to Hai Phong, the seaport city. After a 2-hour drive we take the hydrofoil (speedboat), which takes you in 45 minutes from Hai Phong to Cat Ba Island. A short coffee break before we welcome you aboard at around 11am. The junk will start cruising to take you to pass by the floating village. 

We’ll enjoy lunch on the boat in Lan Ha Bay while we keep cruising to the most scenic and remote areas of the bay with hundreds of beautiful islands.

Continue cruising to further see this unique area and kayak through the narrow lagoons and tunnel caves called Hang Ca (the Bat Cave). 

We cruise towards Bai Trai Dao beach for some free time to swim, relax and to enjoy the sunset on the bay. We go for anchor at a calm area for dinner and experience a peaceful night on the junk among beautiful mountains.

Day 2 : Lan Ha Bay - Cat Ba (Breakfast and lunch)
