Morning: Start your trip early with a hotel pick up in Hanoi’s Old Quarter to make the 100km journey to Ninh Binh. On the way, relax and enjoy the beauty of the rural Vietnamese countryside.

On arrival, your guide will take you to Tuyet Tinh Coc, a lesser known area of Ninh Binh. Here you will explore a beautiful cave, a temple nestled between mountains and a brilliant blue lake perfect for pictures.

Before stopping for lunch, head to Ninh Binh’s famous Mua Caves. Explore inside the caves and then walk up the 500 steps for panoramic views of Tam Coc and the Ninh Binh mountains!

Lunch: Enjoy a buffet lunch at a local restaurant, with a variety of meat and vegetable dishes and plenty of rice!

Afternoon: After a local lunch, head to Tam Coc river and step into a rowboat to explore the area. Pass between the karst mountains, past rice paddies and through three enormous caves whose stalactite reach down towards the water. It takes approximately two hours to slowly make your way along the peaceful river, so you should sit back and relax and take it all in.

This is also a perfect place for bike riding and you will have the chance to visit the small villages of the area by bicycle before heading back to Hanoi for the evening.
