Hanoi: Ninh Binh, Karst, Caves, Hoa Lu “The Ancient Capital”
After breakfast, your tour guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel and drive roughly 2 hours (91km) through the lush countryside to Son Ha village in Ninh Binh Province.
Upon arrival you will join a “countryside leisure excursion” ride on bicycles, between the lush green fields and through the narrow lanes, seeing the locals going about their daily lives.
Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.
After lunch, we will take a relaxing sampan boat (4 people in each sampan) down a small canal to visit Thien Ha caves, enjoying the natural scenery along the way. This is a newly discovered eco-tourism attraction and said to be the most beautiful cave in Ninh Binh by tourists, offering endless photo opportunities.
After discovering Thien Ha Caves you’ll continue your leisurely boat trip. You will row for 2,5 hours more on an untouched water route toward Thung Nang “Sunshine Valley”, a pristine area surrounded by sheer limestone cliffs and stunning rice paddies. This promises you a one-of-the-kind experience. Along the way, you can enjoy the fresh air, clean and clear water with underwater grass while having plenty of Kodak moments. Also, the absolute absence of crowds will be a big bonus.
Arrival Thung Nang you will be picked up by your awaiting driver and then transfer to Hoa Lu, The Ancient Capital, where you will visit the remaining two temples of Dinh King and Le King.
Finish your fabulous day and transfer to your hotel in Hanoi. Tour ends.
