Ninh Binh - Hoa Lu - Tam Coc

Located 100 kilometers from Hanoi, Hoa Lu, a part of Ninh Binh province, has recently become a tourism magnet thanks to its magnificently scenic view of mountains, rivers as well as historical relics. Hoa Lu used to be the capital of Vietnam in 968 when King Dinh Bo Linh came to the throne and constructed the city's citadel which is now the seat of the pagoda and temple dedicated to the Kings of Tran Dynasty, making this place one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Vietnam.

Hoa Lu is also known as "Ha Long on Land" for its scenery which is exactly the same as that of Ha Long Bay. However, the only difference is that the towering limestone cliffs and mountains in Hoa Lu spring up from the green & lush paddy fields instead of the emerald water in Ha Long Bay. A one-day-trip from Hanoi to Hoa Lu can be done with a popular boat ride to Tam Coc, the three mountains with beautiful caves.

Tam Coc
Some millions years ago, Ha Long Bay used to connect with limestone mountains in Hoa Lu. Oceanic vestiges still remain through the erosion of the caves, offering an adventurous tour in such caves. A trip to Tam Coc is so interesting that visitors should not miss a chance to experience it.
You can reach Tam Coc by a boat ride along the stream flowing through green and lush rice fields dotted with towering mountains. At Tam Coc, there is the temple built to commemorate Kings of the Tran Dynasty who defeated Kublikhan's army. The bell tower predominantly stands in the front yard, and the heroes are worshipped inside the temple.

Bich Dong Pagoda
Bich Dong Pagoda is regarded as the second most beautiful pagoda in Vietnam after the Huong Pagoda (Perfume Pagoda). Many statues of Buddha are enshrined there. The bell tower is finely decorated. Visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of mountains and rivers in Hoa Lu from the top of the pagoda.

Cuc Phuong National Park
Situated 140 kilometers from Hanoi, Cuc Phuong National Park covers an area of 222 square kilometers primarily of tropical forests. These forests contain a variety of enormous ancient trees, offering a great habitat to approximately 250 bird species, more than sixty mammal species and different kinds of plants.vietnam travel.
There are also pleasantly natural paths opened for tourists to walk around the park's area.
