III. MODERN BUS TRANSFER FROM HANOI – HAI PHONG – CATBA

About three hours from Hanoi to Cat ba, a trip requiring bus, a boat and a minivan, Cat Ba turned out to be the best way to see the bay. Or not quite: it sits on Lan Ha Bay, the southern part of Halong, and is a ruggedly beautiful island in its own right.

Rugged, craggy and jungle-clad Cat Ba, the largest island in Halong Bay, has experienced a tourism surge in recent years. The central hub of Cat Ba Town is now framed by a chain of low-rise concrete hotels along its once-lovely bay, but the rest of the island is largely untouched and as wild as ever. With idyllic Lan Ha Bay just offshore you’ll soon overlook Cat Ba Town’s overdevelopment.

As the pickup from your hotel is included, non road pickup on the way as local buses, plus with speed boat, this combo make your journey 1hour 30 minutes quicker than traditional way using local buses.
