3 days, 2 nights.
Day 1: Hanoi – Bai Chay – Halong. ~170 km, ~5 h.
Riding to Bai Chay in 5 hours. Good sealed road. Promenade along the coast in Halong City. A junk is waiting to take us and our bikes to cruise in Halong Bay. Lunch with seafood on the boat. Boating to Thien Cung cave, fishing village and then through myriads of limestone to Ba Trai Dao (Three Peach Fruit Islet). Swimming and sleep here.
Day 2: Cat Ba. Boating.
Cruise to Cat Ba. Cat Ba is the far end of Halong Bay. Cat Ba still live from the resource that the sea offers. The tourism is developed and of high quality. The Cat Ba Bay is a condensed of Halong Bay, its labyrinth of limestone so dense that it is difficult to imagine we are on the sea.
We created this itinerary – the floating village Van Gia. They are our personal friends and the relation with them is intimate, even knowing that some companies now also pass through there.
Last but not least, Monkey Island (Cat Dua Islet) was totally ignored by mass tourism when we propose to stop there. It has got nothing special beside the fact that there is nobody except monkeys and one family who takes care of their security.
Arrive in Cat Ba and check in Princes Hotel. Take a little boat (sampan) to the floating restaurant for dinner.
Day 3: Cat Ba – Hanoi. ~120 km, ~3 h.
Motorbiking on Cat Ba Island in the morning on the mountain road. Ferry at 1.30 pm to Hai Phong. Drive back to Hanoi in 2 hours. Arrive in Hanoi around 6 pm.
