Full description
Begin by being picked up from your hotel in the Old Quarter Area, from where you depart for Ninh Binh. Your first stop is soon made at the Hang Mua tourism site, where you hike up the 500 steps of Mua Cave for great views over the neighboring rice fields and the river of Tam Coc. You then enjoy a special lunch of local food prepared by the hostess, such as soup, chicken with lemongrass, fried fish, and steamed rice. From there, experience life on the water as a local rows you by boat to the three impressive limestone caves of Tam Coc. You then see some of the local temples amongst the karst mountains and paddy fields, where the rice can turn the fields yellow during harvest.
