In the morning
- From 8h00, be picked up at your hotel for 2.5 hours
drive south of Hanoi to Tam Coc, where we stop at a
local restaurant and start cycling around.
- You would be took a ride through villages, lush rice
fields and rocky outcrops (rice harvesting time: May and
Sep) until lunch at the local restaurant with scenic
view over the river.
In the afternoon
- We take a sampan ride along a river, which is used by
farmers to access their paddy fields, an irresistible
treat. Just relax and enjoy the sensation of being
gently paddled by hand in a little boat, gliding through
lotus fields (in summer) into the centre of the Halong
Bay in land. Lose yourself in this unique experience,
along a stretch of blue-green river, and marvel at
dancing water refractions under the coolness of passing
Tam Coc (three caves).
- Upon arrival back in the boat dock, drive to Hoa Lu
Vietnam capital city (968 1009) for the King Dinh and
Le Temples as well as ancient citadel traces. Finally,
leave the area and drive back to Hanoi, trip ends at
your hotel about 18h30.
