Cycling distance: 5 - 15 km - Difficulty: Easy

Depart the hotel this morning at 8.30 for the 2-hour drive through rural northern Vietnam to NINH BINH, one of the most beautiful parts of Vietnam with its spectacular scenery and historical temples. It is also called ‘Dry Halong Bay’ for its magnificent limestone karsts which dominate the landscape.

Upon arrival, begin a leisure 5 to 15 km (according to preference) biking trip around Tho Ha Village passing by peaceful villages and enjoying the rustic countryside landscapes. Continue to Dong Tam Hamlet to join in some engaging agricultural activities such as catching crabs, fishing and transplanting, watering vegetables and more.

Enjoy lunch before cruising on a 2-hour boat trip through small canals among the paddy fields (rice fields seen between March and early June), then stroll along the winding rocky path of the foot for 200m and go up 20 steps to reach the Galaxy Cave Gate. Get inside the cave and admire the spectacular stalactites above the cave ceiling. Continue to discover But Hien Cave and be attracted by many natural sparkling stalactites with shapes and figures before returning to the pier and transfer to the hotel for check-in.

ACCOMMODATIONS
Enjoy a leisure morning with breakfast at the hotel before driving an hour to Phat Diem Church - built in stone in 1892. It is a blend of Vietnamese and European architecture giving birth to an “eclectic architectural style”. Step through ancient structures of this complex to feel the delicate sculptures. Then enjoy a short drive to visit a mat weaving family who live by the river bank. Communicate with them through the guide and get a glimpse of the life of locals negotiating economic progress and keeping the traditional family craft alive.

Transfer back to Tam Coc for lunch. Tour finishes with visiting Bich Dong Pagodas, an ever ancient three tiered cave pagoda, and discovers charming pagoda and stupendous view from the top.

Return to Hanoi in late afternoon.

NOTE: Mat waving family will stop working during harvesting & cultivating season (May - June & September - October) / Check if available during Lunar New Year (Tet) Holiday.
