Day 2: Cat Ba – Boating.

Offroad Vietnam Motorbike Adventures - Cruising In Halong Bay & Cat Ba: Cruise to Cat Ba, hike up Monkey IslandCruise to Cat Ba. Cat Ba is at the far end of Halong Bay. Cat Ba still lives from resources of the sea. Tourism is developed and of high quality. Cat Ba Bay is a miniature of Halong Bay, its labyrinth of limestone karsts so dense that it is difficult to imagine we are on the sea.

We created this itinerary – the floating institute where they have a big farm to raise fish. They are our personal friends and the relationship with them is close.
Last but not least, Monkey Island (Cat Dua Islet). This has been totally ignored by mass tourism and has nothing special except the fact that there is nobody on the island except the monkeys and some forest rangers who care for them. Banana is the best gift we can give them. They usually go down at about 15.00 to get the food but there is no guarantee that you will see them. We then hike up the shark teeth rocks to get to the top of the island to have a panorama of Cat Ba Bay.
Arrive in Cat Ba and check in to a hotel.

Overnight in a hotel.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, permits, entrance fees and boat trip.
