However, Bai Tu Long, which is a little farther north, is much less well known and perhaps all the more majestic for its modesty. Our group of 16 boarded a coach in Ha Noi late on a Friday, impatient to arrive at our destination after a busy working week. It took us nearly three hours to get to Cam Pha Town, where we rested the night in a small hotel close to the port, from where the boat we had chartered was to pick us up early the next morning.
