7:30 - 8:00 AM You will be picked up from your hotel or our office in Hanoi old quarter, then take about 2 hour bus ride to Ninh Binh Vietnam. After getting out
of the busy streets of the city, the smooth drive on National Highway No1 through the farm land will offer you a good start of the day with the views of the countryside: rice fields, villages...
About 10.00 AM, we will arrive at Tam Coc boat operation place where you will get on a sampan-boat for 2-hour ride along a scenic river. The local rower is gently rowing us in between towering limestone mountains and through three caves. There are a lot of beautiful stalactites of different shapes hanging down from the ceiling. The landscape is so dramatic that it has been considered as "on-land Halong Bay". After that, we will get transferred to a restaurant for your lunch with local specialties.
After lunch and rest, walk on back roads to enjoy the landscape of mountains, farms and villages.
End the day with 500 steps up to the summit of Ngoa Long Mountain in Hang Mua. From the top, you are able to enjoy the stunning 360-degree view over the karsts. After that, get back down for the return drive to Hanoi city centre. End the tour at the door of your hotel.
