Your hotel in Hanoi
This trip will take you, by boat to highlights of the areas including the Tam Coc Caves and old temples dedicated to King Dinh & King Le. You will pass stunning green paddy fields which for many Vietnamese bring to mind Halong Bay, hence the area has been dubbed “the Dry Halong Bay”.
Your tour is led by a local expert guide and includes lunch at a local restaurant.
To start the Ancient Capital & Dry Halong Bay Tour a driver will pick you up at your hotel in Hanoi. You will drive 90km outside of the city to Ninh Binh, the ancient capital of Vietnam.
From here you will start your boat trip that brings you past beautiful limestone karsts that jut out from the paddy fields. These fields remind Vietnamese of Halong Bay of Vietnam, which is where the scenery got its name from “Halong-bay-on-land”. (Dry Halong Bay).
Your boat trip will take you to the king’s palace of the 10th century and the Dinh and Le temples.
Once you finish your adventure a driver will be waiting to take you back in an air conditioned vehicle to the hotel in Hanoi that you were picked up from.
