What To Expect

Make your way to one of Vietnam's most significant Buddhist sites on a guided day trip from Hanoi. Start your morning with a convenient pick up at your hotel located within the Old Quarters, or meet up with your guide at the designated point before you're whisked off to the Huong Son District, where you'll officially begin the day's activities. Board a row boat and take a relaxing ride along the Yen Stream, where you'll pass scenic landscapes and enjoy the natural poetic beauty of the surroundings. You'll then arrive at the Thien Tru Harbor, where you'll begin your trek up to the Huong Tich cave and finally arrive at the famed Perfume Pagoda, one of the largest and most unique religious sites in Northern Vietnam. The area is comprised of a complex of pagodas where huge numbers of pilgrims flock to to pray for happiness and prosperity in the coming year. Take in the intricate and natural designs within the caves and snap a few photos to take home before heading back to enjoy a delicious local lunch. As the sun sets, you'll be transported safely back to your hotel.

    if you go in Dec, be prepared that it is extremely cold and wet. Wear layers and bring ponchos.

    Tour guide did not ensure correct headcount in bus. After long drive for 2 hours reached location for boat riding. He only noticed 1 person wrongly joined the group. Then he just leave that person. Not a responsible tour guide.

    After Ha long Bay and Trang An tour, this pales in comparison. They were 9 of us in the tour. Basically, some boat rides, temple tour and a cave tour. The Cave was the highlight, but our tour guide who is an obnoxious kid named Kiem, kept rushing us, only to rest for like 10 mins. You have pay for the tram which I would rate a lil higher if it was included. The tram takes 10 mins, but they say the hike will take 30-40 mins, which I cannot fathom how it would be possible to be on time if you go that route. But for us, we like to take a lot of pictures. The lunch is shared per table. This is a fairly ok tour, not good but not bad. There were a lot of construction going on. You buy some animals to set them free only for them to get caught. They picked us up on time and we were back in our hotel at a little over 6pm without a stop over at the end.

    - Harmonious view of mountains, river and pagoda - Delicate and kind tour guide - Not a bad quality of meal - Generally very peaceful tour.

    Good tour! A bit different to what I was expecting. Lunch and the pagoda is on the other side of the yen stream. The lunch was okay - different dishes of fish, rice, goat and tofu. Not a buffet- but they do bring dishes that you take a portion from on your table. A bit annoying that the cable car wasn't included. If you hate sweating or ate unfit (like me) I definitely suggest taking full advantage of the cable car. The walk on the way down was pleasant but a lot of steep steps. If you do chose this tour I hope you enjoy:)
