What to Expect
We leave Hanoi in the morning and enjoy a wonderfully scenic 2-hour drive to Hoa Lu, the ancient royal capitol of Vietnam. Upon our arrival, your guide will take you to visit temples dedicated to Dinh and Le dynasty kings. Though the temples are not entirely maintained, some precious antiques are still to be found here such as the whole-stone dragon thrones and lacquered statues of the kings and other members of their royal families.

We continue our tour with a visit to Tam Coc with a twelve kilometer bicycle ride from Hoa Lu along a country lane with green paddy fields. On the outskirts of Tam Coc, we stop for lunch in a local restaurant.

From the wharf we row a sampan along the Ngo Dong river to reach the Tam Coc Grotto, which consists of the Hang Ca, Hang Hai and Hang Ba caves. While drifting along you may spot mischievous monkeys and herds of goat. The river trip presents amazing photo opportunities, especially when locals come to harvest the water rice planted along the river.

Among the three caves, Hang Ca is the longest and considered the most picturesque. This grotto is adorned with beautiful sparkling stalactites and stalagmites. The second stop-over on our waterway journey, Hang Hai, lays 1 kilometer away with Hang Ba located very nearby.

Arrive back at you Hanoi accommodation at approximately 6:30 PM.
