Day 1: Hanoi – Hai Phong

After moving to the gathering point and listening to some rules for a safe trip, we start hitting the road to Hai Phong city around 9 am. Follow Road 5, where we will pay a quick visit to Bat Trang village. Only about 15 km from the center of Hanoi, Bat Trang is famous for its traditional pottery. Since the road leading to Hai Phong is quite smooth and easy to ride, we will have plenty of time to explore exciting stops along the way, and Bat Trang is one of them.

The most crowded and bustling area is the Bat Trang market, where you can find countless pottery workshops selling ceramic products of various designs and colors. From vases, cups, dishes, teapots, etc. – you can buy anything you want to take back as a souvenir or give your loved ones. To learn more about the unique culture as well as pottery making process, our team will visit some local families to chat with them or even try making ceramic following their instructions.

Leaving Bat Trang village, we keep riding to Hai Phong – a city famous for a lot of delicious foods and rich history. In the summer, the streets are covered with the red color of flamboyant flowers, so it is also known as “the city of flamboyant flowers”. After checking in at the hotel, we will have some time to relax and explore this beautiful city. Overnight at a local hotel to regain energy for the next trip.

Enjoy breakfast in the city before riding to Binh port to buy the ticket and hop on a speedboat to Cat Ba Island. We only have about a 30 km ride today, but you will be joining a fantastic boat tour instead.

Upon arrival, we spend about 1 hour relaxing and exploring this beautiful island before taking the boat trip to Lan Ha Bay. Located in the south of Halong Bay, Lan Ha impresses tourists with hundreds of lush islets and pristine beaches. On the hot summer days, this is really heaven for visitors to immerse in the fresh blue water. Besides swimming, you can also try many other exciting activities such as diving, rock climbing, or sunbathing – All will be an unforgettable experience during your vacation to Vietnam. Lunch right on the boat with signature dishes of Vietnamese cuisine.

In the afternoon, you can choose to visit floating fishing villages, do kayaking to explore spectacular stalactite caves, or continue to swim in the secluded beaches located right at the foot of the majestic rocky mountains. Our boat tour ends in the late afternoon. Then, we return to Cat Ba Island for dinner and overnight at a local hotel.

Day 3: Exploring Cat Ba island

We will spend this entire day discovering the island and Cat Ba National Park. If Phu Quoc is considered the “Pearl Island” of the South, the North has Cat Ba island. With over 17,000 hectares of land area, Cat Ba is one of the three largest islands in Vietnam. The large land area along with more than 360 islands gives Cat Ba Island an extremely rich and diverse natural ecosystem. From caves, beaches, and swamps to mangroves, coral reefs, etc. – the island has it all. Boasting spectacular natural scenery of mountains and super stunning isolated beaches, Cat Ba has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in Northern Vietnam that attracts a lot of domestic and foreign travelers coming each year.

Keep riding to the downtown area, and we will meet Cat Ba National Park – a must-visit spot on this island. It is home to many rare plants and animals, some of which are at risk of extinction. Send a motorbike to Beo port and take a cruise trip to the bay, where we will spend time swimming and kayaking. Back in town in the late afternoon to have dinner and enjoy a good night’s sleep at the hotel.

Day 4: Back to Hanoi

Enjoy the last moments on Cat Ba island before returning to Hanoi. There is no set schedule for this morning, so you are free to decide what you want to do.

You can take a moto-taxi or taxi to get here and then have a boat tour to explore this village. The beautiful scenery of hundreds of floating houses hidden at the foot of the small islets will surely feast your eyes, so do not miss out.

Continue to discover Cai Beo village until 10 am; then, we will take a short walk to the boat pier to catch the speedboat to Hai Phong city. We have lunch in the city before hopping on a motorbike to come back to Hanoi on the familiar Road 5. Our 4-day motorbike tour from Hanoi to Halong Bay and Cat Ba Island ends at around 4 pm.
