Things to do near Hai Phong

These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Hai Phong, along with a brief description:

♦ Elephant Mountain

Nature enthusiasts will love the opportunity to check out Elephant Mountain, a rocky range of mountains that backdrops the city. You can discover a series of beautiful caves with many dramatic stalagmites, stalactites and other rock formations. Look out for shapes of dragons, tigers, and elephants. One of the caves (Long Tien) is a local worship site to a female army general. You will find 6th century ruins at the top of the mountains that date back to centuries ago. Plus, the view of the surrounding region is simply magnetic.

♦ Cao Linh Pagoda

Hai Phong is famous for its many temples and shrines, but one of the most popular must-see pagodas is Cao Linh Pagoda. Originally built with many stalls, this pagoda is where government officials of Viet Minh kept food for the war of resistance. A year later, it was set on fire by French invaders, and then later used for base shooting by the U.S. Air Force. Having since been restored, this Pagoda is now a popular tourist stop. During a visit, you can admire its colorful and unique architecture, as well as learn more about its origins.

♦ Cat Ba National Park

When spending time in Hai Phong, you can easily catch a ferry to the nearby Cat Ba National Park, which is located on an island situated in Ha Long Bay. Cat Ba National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the white-headed langur, an endangered species of primate. This is a wonderful place to visit for a challenging hike in the jungle! A hike to the top of the park will reward you with panoramic 360-degree views of the island and surrounding area. There are also some caves and a Viet Hai village. Guided hikes are available and recommended, so you can make the most out of your visit.
