Located 120 km to the East of Hanoi Capital, Hai phong, is one of the most developed coastal cities in the country with many natural heritages and charming landscapes. Haiphong shares borders with Quang Ninh province to the north, Hai Duong province to the west and Thai Binh province to the South.

The topography of Hai phong is diverse, reflecting the long and complicated historical geological process. The northern part of Haiphong has plains alternated with hills, while the southern part of the city has a low and flat terrain of a typical delta inclining to the sea.

Cat Ba island in Hai Phong

A trip to Cat Ba island can be separated or combined with a visit to Halong Bay. This is the largest island in the Cat Ba Archipelago that consists of 350 limestone outcrops adjacent to Halong.

Cat Ba Island supports a population of over 20,000, most of whom live off fishing or farming in the South, in and around Cat Ba Town. The town is small and ancient, with clusters of fishing boats and inspiring sunsets across the harbor. You can check out the catch of the day in the early morning, see cuttlefish dried over hot charcoals, or stroll around the old town.
