华闾是越南丁朝、前黎朝的首都，来到这里不难发现周边全由石灰岩喀斯特地貌所围绕，确实是一个非常安全的建都之地。来到三谷，一览奇峰异石，优美风景。我在这里第一次看到船夫们用 “双脚划船”的绝技，感到很新鲜， 也很有趣。三谷的游船荡漾在清澈的河水中，穿越溶洞，探索传说中的桃花源记，这一切美得不切实际。
Overall the trip is bearable as travel distance is only 1.30hr to 2hr and English-speaking tour guide is very informative and helpful. However, since it needed to cover two places , it can get a little rush at Hoa Lu and for cycling activity as well.
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.
