Q: Hi, I am hoping to go to Halong Bay for 3 days, should I go to Cat Ba Island ? Any tip would be great.
A: I think it really depends on the type of activities you enjoy doing and your budget. Three days in Halong will give you a goodly amount of time for exploring or sports . If you will be spending nights on your boat, it will be a world of difference from land-based accommodations in Halong City or on Cat Ba Island.
If you have small craft landing capability, be sure to spend some time at a fishing village on the bay. It’s a a really fun, memorable and unique Halong experience.
There may be a few more responses to your question, but in the meantime, type Cat Ba and Halong in the search box. There are general discussion threads on travel to those places with some ideas on where to stay, what to do, etc.
Besides, Halong Bay resembles a geographic work of art. While exploring the bay, you feel lost in a legendary world of stone islands. Halong bay is also a region of highly-concentrated biological diversity with many ecosystems of salt water-flooded forests, coral reefs, and tropical forests featuring thousands of species of animal and plant life.
Enjoy your trip!
