What We Love:

Back in 968 and until 1009 (under the Dinh Dynasty), Hoa Lu was the capital city of Vietnam. And even though the title was taken by Thăng Long in 1010, the city remains a treasury of historical interest to this day. The Hoa Lu - Tam Coc Day Trip takes you on an exciting adventure through natural and cultural landmarks. After hotel pick up in Hanoi, you start off in Ninh Binh and hop on a boat in Tam Coc. Passing through caves and limestone karst formations, you get to explore Vietnam’s landscape in all its diversity. After lunch at a local restaurant, you go on to visit the temples of Dinh and Le Dynasty before heading back to Hanoi.

very, very beautiful, highly recommended for anyone visiting vietnam


Hoa Lu should really be visited while accompanied by a guide or else it's just beautiful temples and scenery everywhere and will likely tend to be rather boring. Hearing stories and knowing the history that had taken place made the tour much much more meaningful.


The river cruise on small boat in Tam Coc was really nice. Spectacular view of Vietnam mountains, courteous English speaking tour guide.
