Good to know
Surprisingly enough, the Cat Ba islands aren’t a common household name (like Hanoi or Halong bay). Nonetheless, it’s a beautiful island that’s worth visiting. You can easily book a bus from Hanoi that will take roughly four hours. While it’s not a huge island compared to the others surrounding Vietnam, we recommend spending at least a few days there. You can "get lost" simply by watching the sunset or the fisherman work. If motorbikes are your thing, they're a great way to explore the city, and you can even join a tour where you’ll pass small villages and get insider information. Going on treks is another, wonderful way to get acquainted with the Island and see breathtaking Cat Ba. When you’re ready to move on to Hanoi or Ninh Binh, you can take one of our comfortable direct buses.

Comfortable & On Time
The bus by Daiichi Travels was on time for our pick up at the hotel Hanoi early morning and they dropped us at the destination on time as scheduled. They also provide a light snack & water as part of the booking and free WiFi on board. They speak English fairly well and its an added advantage. They do have a better frequency in number of buses compared to the others running in the Hanoi to Cat Ba Island route. Keep up the good work team. Happy travelling everyone. Tandy
