Go to Ha Long but visit all Ha Long bay - Lan Ha bay - Cat Ba island - Your dream now comes true!
Ha Long bay and Cat Ba island - Lan Ha bay are usually compared to twin sisters but one is Miss World and one is staying humbly in the countryside. Both are gorgeous, loving and gracious. The elder Ha Long is more famous, easily to approach, more luxurious; hence a date with her is more expensive. Yet, the younger Cat Ba appears to have hidden charms and various shades. Sometimes she shows tenderness with calm waves patting rock mountains, sometimes she showed up with a proud look with the majestic sunset from Cannon Fort, sometimes she hides the war pain in scars and roars strongly in the wood covering Hospital cave.
Regardless of her beauty, when people talk about Ha Long and Cat Ba - Lan Ha, Cat Ba more than often is outscored because it takes a long journey with many legs: bus, then ferry and bus again. How could we blame sensitive and art-inclined people to feel uncomfortable with the hustle on the way and the minor cumbersome arrangement in accommodation? Those tiny unpleasant things can possibly ruin a so-called perfect trip.
