Cat Ba island is one of the most scenic parts of north Vietnam that eco-adventurers should visit. The area is home to picturesque ocean panorama, unique fishing villages and it offers some of the most eco friendly activities that you should expect:



Unlike Halong Bay, Cat Ba is more pristine and unspoiled for boat cruise and kayaking. Many of the islands here are less explored which is an ideal condition to navigate your kayak. Hidden caves, blue lagoons are still plenty while Van Hai village attracts your adventure by warm local welcomes.
