Beautiful trek in the national park, there is an entrance fee about 2 USD, no need in any additional guides, if you can step in to the jungle and a climb a little - its a nice experience for a half day tour. You can...More

3 hours walk with an amazing view. We also saw spiders and a huge snake (2 meter) if your legs ain’t good. Than this isn’t such a good idea. Don’t forget 2 liter water to bring for your friend and yourself

Great (but very hot) to hike. Quiet place with amazing green mountain scenery and lovely views. Make sure you have good protection for mosquitos, we were sweating the repellent away. And it was only 8:30 am.

This is a beautiful place to walk and spend a few hours. The trek is clearly marked and easy to follow, although it can be slippy after rain. There is a nice cafe to get a drink at the beginning (or end) of the trails.

Yes, you can go to Cat Ba by motorbike. You need passing two ferry. Or you can go to Cat Ba by speed boat with your motorbike at Ben Binh or Dinh Vu.
