Last night we never sleep well again. The room on the boat is just too hot. No electricity supply after 2 am. Some of them even went to sleep on the deck.

After the breakfast, we went to Cat Ba Island. There are nothing much on the island. I would just say bored. We went for a 2 hours treckking before check in to a Hotel. But hotel looks big, but not many guest.

Actually we had an argument with the guide. We are promised to have the Monkey Island trip during we purchased for the trip, but the guide want us to pay for the Island Trip. Therefore, always ask for the trip iterinary on all trip package. We made a call to the booking office to double confirm and finally after an hour of argument, the guide allow us to go. We went to the Monkey Island, but we never see any monkey. Wasted the whole evening there just  for nothing.

During our dinner, we met 3 girls from England and they we got to know that they are actually also encouter the same problem like what we had.
