Cat Ba Island, Vietnam: A Short Travel Guide
Cat Ba is the largest island in Lan Ha Bay and Ha Long Bay, located in northeastern Vietnam. The island is known for its stunning limestone mountains, lush green jungle, and pristine beaches. You can find a range of outdoor activities which make a great alternative to the more expensive Ha Long Bay cruises. The central hub is Cat Ba Town, which is framed by a range of hotels, travel agencies, and restaurants. And while this is the most touristic part of the island, the rest is largely untouched and wild with the scenic Lan Ha Bay just offshore. In this travel guide, we share our top things to do on Cat Ba Island as well as great places to stay, eat, and drink.
