Tour Itinerary

Take a ferry at Tuan Chau Island to depart for Cat Ba Island.

Upon arrival, we go to the center of the Cat Ba National Park with a hike up the mountain. The trails here lead you to Kim Giao Forest, filled with a rare precious kind of wood that was recorded in Vietnam’s “Red List” because of its ability to detect toxins. Next, we will climb to the top of Ngu Lam. From the summit you can enjoy the extensive panoramic view of Cat Ba with hundreds of mountains. We will continue our hike to the town of Cat Ba with stops along the way to take advantage of photo opportunities en route; we will also visit the Quan Y Cave. This is a natural cave but during the period of resistance from 1960 to 1965 it was used as a war hospital. The cave has 3 floors full of rooms used to aid the sick and injured during the war. We will arrive in Cat Ba town and have time to relax on the beach.

La excursión fue muy bien. Hai fue super amable en todo momento y professional. Además subiendo a la montaña él sufrió un pequeño accidente (se golpeó la cabeza con una piedra) y el pobre quiso seguir a pesar de estar preocupados por él. Siguió con todo el tour como estaba previsto. La verdad que la subida a la montaña es algo dura (mucho calor) pero vale la pena. La cueva es super chula y Hai te explica todo lo que quieras con detalle. Luego nos llevó a comer a un sitio muy rico. Durante toda la excursión tuvimos un coche para nosotros con aire acondicionado. Es una excursión privada. Nos encantó. Gracias Hai!! Less
