Get picked up in the morning from your Hanoi hotel, transferring by vehicle to Ninh Binh, a city situated in Vietnam’s Red River Delta. When you arrive you’ll board a bamboo “sampan” boat for a river-based exploration of Tam Coc National Park.
Float on the Ngo Dong River amidst the otherworldly “karst” formations, caves, and rice fields of this protected outdoor area, a site which many visitors compare to Vietnam’s famous Halong Bay. Following your trip, you’ll take a break for an included lunch at a local restaurant.
Following your mid-day meal, continue to Hoa Lu, the ancient Vietnamese city founded by the Le and Dinh royal dynasties. Explore the remains of the temples that dot the area, including the three-story Bich Dong pagoda from the 15th century, plus the temples of Dai Hanh and Dinh Tien Hoang. At the end of your exploration, you’ll head back to Hanoi where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.
