Take a trip to the breath-taking scenery of Trang An inside the Trang An Eco-Tourism Complex. After being picked up from your hotel in Hanoi, your guide will take you to explore this area, where you will find limestone ranges, valleys, caves and rivers as well as the Vuc Vong Temple and the Khong residence.
In a hand-rowed sampan, you'll glide along green waterways through a landscape of limestone karsts with steep, almost vertical sides. Set among this incredible scenery is the ancient Hoa Lu Citadel - the birthplace of the Vietnamese nation. In the 10th century, it was here that the first capital was established. Today only the foundations remain of the original palace, but visitors can still see two temples, Dinh Tien Hoan Temple and Le Dai Hanh Temple, dedicated to the rulers of the first two dynasties of the nation. These temples are a sight to behold, with traditional courtyards and lily ponds, set among the dramatic rice paddies and karst formations of the area.
After your tour, your guide will drop you back off at your hotel in Hanoi.
