Among the highlights at cat ba. A little expensive at 60000D, but we will worth it I think. The view is exceptional on a good working day, harbour, islands, mountains and coastline. The past, essentially about the males that manned the guns right here, may...More

Good hike/incline walk up to cannon fort. There is a bar/restaurant up the top to relax. Great walk through of war relics and remnants.

Really bad instructions and we missed the sunset 🙁 no signs, or if there were sign it was in vietnamese only. Parking fee for scooter was 10k and entry 40k. Would have been better if there would have been clear instructions. View is beautiful tho

Would recommend in daylight hours. Country roads are narrow and winding and no street lights.
