Hoa Lu Tam Coc Full-Day Trip from Hanoi
Pickup includedPick-up at hotel
- Hoa Lu ancient capital
- Tamcoc-Halong bay on land
- Walking, boat trip
Apart from the historical interest, the river trip in Tam Coc is wonderful for photo hunters, especially when local people come to harvest the water rice planted along the river, or when they transplant some seedling for the next crops. The tourists often compare the place with Guilin - China, or more closely, to the limestone islets of Halong Bay in the Tonkin Gulf for their similar geological structures and shapes. Thus Tam Coc is also called Halong-Bay-On-Land.
We leave Hanoi at 8:00 and head south for a 2-hour drive along Highway One. We spend one hour visiting the Dinh and Le sanctuaries and then move on to Tam Coc for a 2 hours and a half boat trip along the Boi River. Along the way we will visit caves and ancient temples. After lunch we can make a visit Bich Dong Pagodas before making our way back to Hanoi.
