Cat Ba Island belongs to Cat Hai district, Hai Phong, connected to the mainland by ferry. The pick-up and drop-off point on the mainland includes the old Got wharf, currently closed and the new Dong Bai wharf replacing it; On the Cat Ba side is Cai Vieng wharf.

Dong Bai ferry terminal officially comes into operation from March 1, 2024, replacing Got ferry terminal 4 km away, continuing to connect the mainland with Cat Ba island (Cat Hai District, Hai Phong). Dong Bai ferry terminal infrastructure was invested and built by a business on their land, then leased to Hai Phong City to use to replace the old Got ferry terminal. This is one of 5 large ferries operating at Dong Bai wharf, able to carry 12 cars and 200 passengers.

From the new Dong Bai ferry terminal to Cai Vieng wharf is 120m farther than the old ferry terminal. However, due to the choice of means and depending on wind direction and tide, the ferry's journey will be longer than the old ferry terminal. Ferry time between the two wharves is about 35-40 minutes/trip.

This new ferry terminal is expected to reduce congestion and shorten the waiting time of tourists when coming to Cat Ba Island, Hai Phong.
