Itinerary

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 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.

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, 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 at Beo port and take a cruise trip to the bay, where we will spend time swimming and kayaking. Back to town in the late afternoon to have dinner and enjoy a good night’s sleep at the hotel.
