Start the day with pickup at your Hanoi hotel, and leave the city behind as you drive into the scenic Ninh Binh countryside. Learn about the Emperors that ruled Vietnam since ancient times, and visit historic temples dedicated to Dinh King and Le King, who reigned in the 10th century, before the imperial capital moved to Hanoi.
Visit a local restaurant for a lunch of typical dishes from Ninh Binh, then board a boat for a trip from Tam Coc. These traditional boats are often rowed by local women, and you’ll have a unique perspective on the landscape as you float through a series of natural caves. Capture shots of paddy fields that brush the base of vertical limestone mountains, and enjoy the easy-going pace of Vietnamese river travel. After three hours on the water, return to the dock for the trip back to Hanoi, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
