Cat Ba Island

The island of Cat Ba is located in the Halong Bay area. Just a few years ago, the island didn't even have any electricity or telephones. Now some of the magic is probably gone. It's nevertheless a beautful place.
This spectacular footbridge was built around the huge rock peninsula separating two beautiful beaches.

Cat Ba national park. The tower up there between the hills is where we ended up after a rather hot and steep climbing.

The view from the watch tower at the top of the mountain was breathtaking!
