Just 100 km from Hanoi, Van Long is an area of astounding natural beauty with limestone peaks whose splendor is often said to surpass that of Ha Long Bay. It is true that this area is often referred to as the new Ha Long Bay on land. The tour includes being rowed along the Van Long River, which makes for a truly unforgettable experience, passing between towering limestone peaks.

Pick-up at 8:30 am at your hotel lobby. We leave Hanoi and head south for a 2-hour drive along Highway One or former Road Mandarin. We spend one hour visiting the Dinh and Le temples of the Ancient Capital Hoa Lu and then we move to Van Long for lunch. You may also enjoy an optional cow chart ride to Van Long Wharf for a 2-hour boat trip along the Van Long River. Along the way we will see caves, green rice fields, limestone mountains and the rural life of the locals before returning to Hanoi. We arrive at 6:00 p.m. Drop-off at your hotel in Hanoi.
