Discover the ancient capital of Hoa Lu in the Ninh Binh province, well-known for its enchanting scenery and history. Visit historic temples from past dynasties, enjoy a serene boat ride along Ngo Dong River, and join a cycling tour through the idyllic countryside.
Start your journey by heading south toward Hoa Lu. Your first stops are at the Dinh and Le temples, built in honor of the first and second emperors of ancient Vietnam. Marvel at the temples' intricate architecture, art, devotional statues, and sculptures.
Next, hop aboard a traditional boat and cruise along the Ngo Dong River to discover Tam Coc, a network of 3 beautiful caves carved naturally by the river. Take time to wander in the stunning landscape with natural limestone formations and paddy fields.
Then enjoy an authentic Vietnamese lunch at a local restaurant in Tam Coc before embarking on a tranquil bike ride through the peaceful countryside. Pedal through native villages and learn more about the history of the land and local culture before returning to Hanoi in the evening.
