Cat Ba Island

Cat Ba is the largest of the islands on Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay. Most commonly, the island is accessed by tour boats from Hanoi, although it’s also possible to take a non-tour boat and bus combination trip from Hanoi or Ha Long City.

The island is a popular destination especially among nature enthusiasts who visit Cat Ba to see the extremely endangered golden-headed Cat Ba Langur, which lives at the National Park. The park is also home to several species of mammals and birds, making it a great destination for nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts. As the National Park is located right in the middle of the island, there are several hotels from which to choose, all ranging from luxury beach resorts and modest guesthouses.

Cat Ba is also home to the popular Monkey Island, which is obviously populated by a collection of monkeys that are familiar with tourists coming to the island. Unlike their wild counterparts, the monkeys on this island tend to be more daring with humans and will often demand food or attention from the tourists, who often arrive in droves via several boats each day. More than just the monkeys, the area offers breathtaking views of the water and surrounding forest, certainly a great destination especially for an island getaway.
