Cat Ba is the biggest and one of the most visited islands in Ha Long Bay.
Ha Long Bay and nearby islands (eg. Cat Ba Island) is one of the most visited places by foreign tourists in northern Vietnam. It is an fascinating place, but sometimes overcrowded by visitors. There are 2 ways how you can get to Cat Ba Island. You can go to Ha Long City and from Tuan Chau Island you need to take a ferry to Cat Ba Island or you can go to Hai Phong and here you can take a speedboat.

Travel distance from Hanoi to Cat Ba Island is about 160 km.


Speedboat from Hai Phong
goes directly to the southern part of the Cat Ba Island, to the town of Cat Ba. There are many hotels or homestays in the southern part of this island. In my opinion, speedboat/ferry from Hai Phong to the town of Cat Ba is the best and quickest way how to reach Cat Ba Island.
