I booked a three day two night package in Hanoi and was not disappointed.The mercury had just tipped the scales at 38 degrees in Hanoi so naturally I opted for the tour with the three hour trek! The hike took us to the top of Catba Island though only a hardy few in our troup made it in the relentless summer heat. The view from the top is worth any hardships suffered en route. On the way back to the boat the heavens opened and we were drenched to the bone. All in a day in the tropics.
