Day 1 Hanoi to Hoa Lu and Tam Coc in Ninh Binh

Hoa Lu was the old capital of Vietnam during Dinh and Pre-Le Dynasty from 968 to 1009. Hoa Lu used to have magnificent and majestic palaces. Hills and mountains surround this area, creating a good place to build the old capital.

Nowadays, coming to Hoa Lu, tourists will learn more about the history of the establishment of Vietnam, and visit the old temples and ruins of the old palaces.

Moreover, Tam Coc is the top beautiful sightseeing in Ninh Binh. Tam Coc is the combination of the Limestone Mountains and the river and rice fields. What an amazing landscape!

Hiring a boat to have someone ride you around this area, you will explore the great views of peaceful places.

Another option is to ride the bicycle around the countryside views. This is also a good activity to enjoy the different life and views. Please tell Vietnam Drive if you like to book optional activity!
