Travel Report: Cool Spots Around Dong Hoi City, Vietnam.

April 2018. The peaceful riverside city of Dong Hoi is the capital of Quang Binh Province. Hugging the north central coastline of Vietnam, there are around twelve kilometers of beaches extending out from the city centre, which makes it all the more surprising just how far off the tourist trail Dong Hoi seems to be. Taking […]

Travel Report: Monkey Island – Halong Bay, Vietnam.

April 2018. I really enjoyed my boat tour with Green Trail! Beginning with a cruise through the peaceful waters of Lan Ha Bay, we eventually reached Halong Bay, Northern Vietnam’s most famous waters. There we were treated to swimming, kayaking and a delicious feast of freshly prepared local food. On the way back to Cat Ba […]

Travel Report: Halong Bay Cruise, Vietnam.

April 2018. After a few gloriously peaceful hours cruising around the beautiful Lan Ha Bay, Green Trail Travel’s day-long boat tour chugged into the much better known Halong Bay. So what’s the difference? Basically nothing! The spectacular limestone peak scenery is the same; just expect more water traffic with an increased number of speedboats, houseboats and […]

You’ll be closer to The National Park and the […]

Travel Report: Cat Co Cove 3 Beach – Cat Ba Island, Vietnam.

April 2018. The trail to Cat Ba Town’s three beaches is just a ten-minute walk from the main drag. Interconnected via a gorgeous walking trail cut into the cliffs, I’d originally intended to visit all three, starting here at the modest sliver of beach known as Cat Co Cove 3. But on arrival I discovered that beaches […]

Travel Report: Cat Ba Town – Cat Ba Island, Vietnam.

April 2018. At first glance, Cat Ba Island’s overdeveloped main drag is little more than an uninspiring stretch of toothy low-rises, beat-heavy bars, tout-inhabited tour offices and kebab carts. Easily the least impressive area of the island, I’m amazed that so many visitors choose to base themselves in Cat Ba Town. Having set myself up at […]
