Day 01: Hanoi – Bai Dinh – Trang An
Your tour guide and driver will pick you up at your Hanoi hotel in the morning and transport you about 100 kilometers south to Ninh Binh.
10.00 – 10.30 am Arrive at the Bai Dinh Pagoda, the largest pagoda in Vietnam, which has 500 La Han figures and a 10-meter-tall, 100-ton bronze statue of Buddha. After a brief electric vehicle ride, you arrive at the pagoda’s gate where you can spend one to two hours exploring this enormous structure.
12.30 pm Enjoy lunch in a local restaurant.
13.30 pm Continue to Trang An, a nearby UNESCO World Heritage site renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty and picturesque karst formations, after a sumptuous lunch. Take a relaxing rowing boat out to explore the area’s beautiful waterways. An enigmatic, fairytale-like environment is created by forested limestone peaks that contrast with green water, caves, lowland, and rivers. The next stop is a network of caves with stunning stalactites in all different sizes, shapes, and colors.
Transfer to your hotel after the boat ride. Free to do as you choose.
