Full description
Start your day with an early 08:00 pick-up at your hotel before taking the 2-hour ride south from Ha Noi to Ninh Binh Province, known to many travelers as Vietnam’s 'Inland Halong Bay'. Once there, hop into a local boat for a 2-hour cruise along the Tam Coc stream. Take a moment to soak up the spectacular scenery while gliding along the river, surrounded by lush rice paddies and towering limestone mountain ranges.

After the boat ride, enjoy an authentic local lunch served at a riverside restaurant. Then take a short trip along the peaceful country road to Hoa Lu, the city that was once Vietnam’s ancient capital 11 centuries ago. Explore 2 of Hoa Lu's remarkable temples, dedicated to the emperors King Dinh and King Le.

After exploring this historic region, you'll head back to Hanoi and be dropped off back at your hotel.
