Hoa Lu – Tam Coc


(1 day)

Hoa Lu, 100 km south of Hanoi, was the capital city of Vietnam under the Dinh Dynasty between AD 968 and AD 980. Some of the sanctuaries and tombs have survived the countless years and can still be visited today. Apart from the historical aspects, the area is also one of astounding natural beauty with limestone peaks whose splendor is often said to surpass that of Ha Long Bay. It is true that this area is often referred to as the Ha Long Bay on land. The tour includes being rowed along the Boi River, which makes for a truly unforgettable experience, passing between towering limestone peaks.

We will leave Hanoi for Ninh Binh Province at 8.00 am. The motorcoach will arrive in Hoa Lu at about 10.00 am, after a short journey through the peacefully beautiful sceneries of the rural areas on the way. We will visit Dinh and Le Temples.

We will have an opportunity to find out the heroic histories of this two Kings, and their victories in the Battles against the Chinese Invasion.

After lunch at a local restaurant, we will take a boat from Van Lam Wharf to reach the Tam Coc Grotto (which means “Three Caves”), consisting of the Hang Ca, Hang Hai and Hang Ba grottoes. These caves are adorned with beautiful stalactites and stalagmites of different shapes and colours that sparkle like gemstones. If you visit this splendid grotto in April or September, you also have a chance to enjoy the spacious yellow paddy fields along the way.
