The “Ninh Binh tour” brings you to the South of Hanoi. Ninh Binh, both a province and a village, is nicknamed “Halong Bay on land” because of its resemblance to the real Halong Bay. Discover vertical limestone mountains, villages, temples, rice fields and lotus ponds by boat, bike and on foot. You will spend the night in a guesthouse in Vietnam’s oldest national park. A visit to the local primate rescue and turtle center teaches you more about the unique species of langurs, primates and turtles native to Vietnam.

Great activities!

We loved the trek-cycle-boat combo! The difference between these activities made this trip unique. Great range of activities to get to know a country and its people.
