5. Travel on a Motorbike to Cat Ba Island

For those who are experienced in driving motorbikes, they can also take advantage of the Hanoi to Cat Ba transportation thanks to the motorbike trip.

The fee for transporting a motorcycle is relatively low, often on the order of a few dollars.

However, this option is of course not suitable for everyone, it is good to know the conditions of the roads in Vietnam, you should also have protective equipment while driving and you must follow all the rules of the road. However, a motorbike can be an ideal means of exploring Cat Ba Island, as traffic on this island is rather more limited. In theory, you can rent it on the island, just like, for example, a bicycle.

To drive a motorcycle in Vietnam, you must have an International Driving Permit with a valid motorcycle license. The trip by motorbike from Hanoi to Hai Phong or Ha Long may not be as interesting as, for example, elsewhere in the north. It is not a scenic drive in nature, it is mainly driven on the plain or around industrial areas. Therefore, consider whether it is at all appropriate to carry out the transport on a motorbike or whether it is not better to just rent it on the island of Cat Ba.
