Hanoi

— 7 nights
The capital of Vietnam, Hanoi has bounded back from the effects of war, and today serves as a bustling commercial and cultural hub bursting at the seams.
Get some cultural insight at Old Quarter and Chua Tran Quoc. Get some historical perspective at Temple of Literature & National University and St. Joseph's Cathedral. There's much more to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at One Pillar Pagoda, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and steep yourself in history at Presidential Palace Historical Site.

Cat Ba

— 6 nights
The largest of the islands in the south of the bay, Cat Ba offers a base for exploring the many limestone landmasses across the UNESCO-protected bay.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Long Tien Pagoda and Cua Van Floating Village. We've included these beaches for you: Minh Chau beach and Cat Co 1 Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Quan Lan Beach (in Quan Lan) and Halong Bay (Bai Tu Long Bay, Ti Top Beach, &more). There's much more to do: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, step off the mainland to explore Cat Ba Island, and explore the fascinating underground world of Trung Trang Cave.

To plan Cat Ba vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

You can take a bus from Hanoi to Cat Ba in 3.5 hours. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
