We were lost trying to get from Cat Ba to Hai Phong airport. The owner called us in and arranged two buses, a boat and private taxi for us. All was taken care of for only 150k.

Decent breakfast too!

My partner and I went to ‘The Good Bar’ each night that we stayed on Cat Ba Island.
The music is good, run by two-three DJ’s a night, playing different genres. The bar each night was full of travellers just like us.! We played many games of pool and drank wayyyy to many cocktails/beer.
The staff were so friendly and accommodating. Particularly Vin behind the bar, he has a talent for making extremely good cocktails and within the the short stay on the island, he has definitely become a friend of Vietnam to remember.!
Keep smiling <3

The good bar, quite ok
Oct 2018 • Business
The Good Bar was located at the center of the island where there were many tourists would stop and stay. In The good bar, we ordered French fries, Vietnamese style Banh mi and local beers for out late lunch at 2 AM. Food was normal, there was nothing special about it. Local beer was cheap, 20k VND for a small cup 350ml and 30k VND for a bigger cup 650ml. They kept playing old pop songs. It was a ok place for lunch.
In the evening, When I was there, the first floor of the bar was full of people. So I went to 3rd floor. The 2nd floor was crazy and hot like hell. I saw some backpack guys were sleeping there. I entered to the room, I saw them, I laughed, they laughed and I left. It was not a floor to have a drink. The 3rd floor of the bar was totally different than the 1st floor. They played loud music. Everybody was drinking, laughing and some of them were using some kind of laughing balloon. I ordered a ....huge local beer. The music was not so bad. The view from the 3rd floor was nice.

It plays premier league football!!

My boyfriend was trying to find somewhere in Cat Ba to watch the football - we walked for ages & tried to find some reviews online that tells you it plays football. We did find a few however this place on the 2nd floor has football for any of the guys out there who “need to watch it!!”
Cheap beer, good cocktails, good music!!

Cheap beer, the WORST music. Pop ballads, cheesey covers & boyband songs. No bar should be playing songs from Frozen...
