Booking code of this tour: HLCB201BIKE
Day 1: Hanoi – Bai Chay – Halong. ~170 km, ~5 h.
Motorbiking to Bai Chay in 5 hours. In fact, it is a good sealed road. Then, we promenade along the coast in Halong City. Around noon, a junk is waiting to take us and the bikes to cruise in Halong Bay. Lunch with seafood on the boat. Boating to Thien Cung cave, fishing village and then through myriads of limestone to Ba Trai Dao (Three Peach Fruit Islet). Finally, swim and sleep here.
Day 2: Halong – Cat Ba – Hai Phong – Hanoi. ~120 km, ~2 h 30 m.
Cruise to Cat Ba. In fact, Cat Ba is the far end of Halong Bay. In general, Cat Ba still live from the resource that the sea offers. However, the tourism is developed and of high quality. The Cat Ba Bay is a condensed of Halong Bay, its labyrinth of limestone so dense that it is difficult to imagine we are in the sea.
We created this itinerary – the floating village Van Gia. They are our personal friends and the relationship with them is intimate, even knowing that some companies now also pass through there.
Last but not least, Monkey Island (Cat Dua Islet) was totally ignored by mass tourism when we propose to stop there. It has got nothing special besides the fact that there is nobody except monkeys and one family who takes care of their security.
Arrive Cat Ba in time for the ferry at 1.30 pm to Hai Phong and ride back to Hanoi on Highway 5.
We try to arrive in Hanoi before 5pm to avoid rush hours. Otherwise, you should be good with city traffic from the experience you got over the last days.
