It is always worthwhile to take a day trip to Hanoi’s surroundings for refreshment away from the city noise. Ninh Binh is an outstanding destination that has many attractions and stunning landscapes. First, journey back to the 10th century and visit the ancient capital. Then, tour the area by row boat, a perfect venue for you to relax and let your mind wander amongst the diverse limestone features.
Pick-up from your hotel is at 8:00am, we have a 2 hour drive (110km South) to the city of Ninh Binh, also known as the Inland Halong and the Ancient Capital. It will be an exciting day highlighted, by a 2 hour boat ride in a hand woven bamboo row boat down the Tam Coc streams enjoying spectacular scenery surrounded by rice paddies and towering limestone mountain peaks.
After lunch served at a local riverside restaurant we make a short transfer (4 km) down a peaceful country road to Hoa Lu, Vietnam’s ancient capital eleven centuries ago.
