Cat Ba to Hanoi Itinerary

Wake up early on Cat Ba and head to the boat harbour with our pick-up service. Set off into the bay and head to Beo Floating Village. Here you will witness the daily life of the Lan Ha fisherman and you’ll have the chance to visit one of the floating homes, the market and, as it is so early, the children heading to school in bamboo boats.

The boat will then continue deeper into Lan Ha Bay, towards the thousand limestone islands dotted on the horizon. Your tour guide will tell you about the local legends of the bay, as well as a few fisherman’s tales.

Slowly the boat will make its way into Ha Long Bay and your guide will point out some of the most famous islands: Toad Island, Titop Island and Fight-cock Island.

Enjoy lunch on the boat as you cruise on towards Halong City. You’ll then depart the boat and travel the rest of the way to Hanoi by bus.

Return to Hanoi Old Quarter by around 4:30 pm.
