Hoa Lu - Tam Coc - Ha Long bay on land (1 day - departure on everyday)

Hoa Lu and Tam Coc are two most beautiful sceneries of Ninh Binh province, just 100 km southeast of Ha Noi. Hoa Lu is the Ancient Royal Capital under Dinh Dynasty and pre-Le Dynasty, which lasted 41 years (968-1009). In comparison with Hoa Lu, Tam Coc is considered Ha Long Bay on land because of its beauty and charm. Sitting on boat en route Tam Coc, you have a good chance of viewing the scenic beauty of huge rocks standing along river and scattered green rice fields, which are all combined to form a poetic painting of the countryside.

Take a small sampan at the wharf to visit Tam Coc, which is literally known “three Caves”, the first cave (Hang Ca) is the longest one, which is considered a real rainbow in the water in the morning time stretching on both sides of the Ngo Dong River. The quiet movements of the oars create a sort of musical rhythm inside the cave. As the sampan leave the cave, you can see what seems to be an old man with white beard fishing, fairy flying in the clouds, peasants collecting fuel and a group of white goats grazing on the hills. The sampan takes you to the second cave (Hang Hai) and the third cave (Hang Ba) before returning to the sampan wharf. Back to Ha Noi in the late afternoon. Tour end at your hotel.
