With 367 islands, more than 300 beaches, and a diverse and rich ecosystem, Cat Ba Archipelago in Cat Hai District, Hai Phong City, is an attractive destination to both domestic and foreign tourists all year round.

Lan Ha Bay

Lan Ha Bay, which is located to the east of Cat Ba island in the northern port city of Hai Phong, is a wonderful destination for visitors to explore, have great experiences and enjoy their weekend vacations. Lan Ha Bay was once called a "forgotten paradise"; however, it has surprised people who love travelling and nature.

As part of the Cat Ba World Biosphere Reserve, Lan Ha Bay is distinguished by the tranquility and spectacular beauty of about 400 dense and small islands of interesting shapes lining up really close one after another, each of which is covered by shiny green vegetation.

In early 2020, Lan Ha Bay was officially made a member of the World's Most Beautiful Bays Club.

Together the islands of Lan Ha Bay are recognised as a lively natural museum which illustrates the erosion of sea water through a long geologic period. 

Each name of the islands and caves across Lan Ha bay implies its own natural shape and features, such as Khi (Monkey) island, Doi (Bat) island, Ham Rong (Dragon Jaw) cave, Sang (Bright) and Toi (Dark) caves.

In summer, in a natural tranquil and romantic landscape of the bay, which is named after a lovely flower, vacationers can swim in crystal clear blue water on 139 white sand beaches across the bay or go diving to explore the colourful coral reefs in Van Bo and Van Ha beaches.

Meanwhile, autumn and winter also provide visitors with interesting experiences through excursions to caves, sailing and kayak trips.

Visiting the bay during the two seasons, tourists can feel relaxed and closer to nature as they can hear the sound of waves splashing day and night at the foot of the cliffs islands and the amazing singing of natural birds from bushes amidst the setting sun glittering on the waves far far away.

Visitors can hire kayaks to visit households in the fishing villages, floating class rooms and Sang (Bright) cave, which serves as a safe shelter for fishermen during rainy season. The cave is also home to many mysterious and stunning stalactites.
