One of the most interesting destination travelers to Vietnam will not miss the opportunity to visit is Catba Island located next to Halong Bay. If Halong Bay is famous for one of the World Heritages, Cat Ba Island is a national park of Vietnam. The island was honorably recognized by UNESCO in December 2004 as a Biosphere reserve of the world.Cat Ba is the largest island in the Bay and approximately half of its area is covered by a National Park, which is home to the highly endangered Cat Ba langur. This golden-headed langur is rarely seen, as fewer than 100 specimens are thought to survive in the wild, although it is the subject of a well-organised conservation programmer.
