Your hotel in Hanoi
Day 1: Hanoi - Cuc Phuong National Park - Ninh Binh
You will be picked up from your hotel for the journey to Cuc Phuong National Park, 140km south of Hanoi.
Go on a bird watching tour at the Cuc Phuong National Park and explore a wealth of wildlife, endemic flora and centuries old caves.. Hike into the dense forest of the national park and spot thousand-year-old dracontomelum and parashorea trees surrounded with coral, vanilla, snow-white and butterfly orchid blooms. You could have a chance encounter with a panther or bear, but creatures like monkeys, flying squirrels and pheasants are found everywhere in the park, so keep your camera ready!
If you are visiting this place in April and May, you’ll see a swarming mass of colourful butterflies, a variety of beetles and rare species of birds.
At the end of the day continue east towards Ninh Binh Province away from mountainous areas towards the flatlands where you will check in to your choice of hotel.
Day 2 – Ninh Binh – Dry Halong Bay - Hanoi
Next morning, after your American breakfast, set out on an excursion from Ninh Binh to the Dry Halong Bay. The bay is popularly known as Tam Coc which means three caves; Hang Ca, Hang Giua and Hang Cuoi. Take a tour around the region and you’ll see huge rock formations protruding out of paddy fields.
Also visit Hao- Lu, an erstwhile capital of the country under Dinh Dynasty and find out about the history and culture of Vietnam. In the morning, go on a boating excursion to the Kenh Ga floating village where people live on boats floating on the Hoang Long River. This pretty village is built on a flooded river surrounded by limestone rocks. You’ll come across catholic churches, water-logged cemeteries and local villagers passing by on their boats.
Continue to visit the Phat Diem, the site of a cathedral remarkable for its vast dimensions and unique Sino-Vietnamese architecture. Marvel at the huge bell dangling from the highest tower of the cathedral and the two stone slabs which were used by the members to observe catholic mass.
