Hello,

I'm wondering if it is possible and convenient to travel from Hanoi individually to Cat Ba, to see some of the Ha Long Bay and thereafter explore the Island of Cat Ba ?

It is my first time in Vietnam. Has any done this? Is it easy, do I have to be careful in this country with individual travels?

Thanks,
