Your tour begins with an 8am pickup from your central Hanoi hotel by your private guide. Traveling in the comfort of a private air-conditioned vehicle, set out on the around 2.5-hour journey to Bai Dinh Pagoda, passing through the scenic countryside of Ninh Binh province.
Arrive at Bai Dinh Pagoda around 10.30am and set out to explore Vietnam’s largest pagoda with your private guide. Hear more about the sacred site as you admire the beautiful temple and stand in awe before the gigantic 32-foot (10-meter) tall Buddha statue, which weighs a mind-boggling 100 tons.
After enjoying a traditional Vietnamese lunch (included) at a local restaurant, continue to Trang An, where you’ll board a boat for a thrilling cruise around the UNESCO World Heritage site. Marvel at the dramatic karst cliffs and glittering waters as you glide around Trang An, and stop to peek into Sang Cave, Toi Cave, and Ba Giot Cave.
Set out on the return journey to Hanoi around 4pm, where your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.
