Create an itinerary including Trang An Grottoes
Explore the hidden cave chains of Trang An Grottoes, a World Heritage Site preserving a huge natural rock garden in a vast lake near Nihn Binh. You'll enter the caves by boat, passing through cracks in the limestone hillocks, which are covered with lush green vegetation. During a popular two- to three-hour boat ride, you'll see dramatic karst scenery and a nine-cave network interconnected by flooded inland waterways, with many suspended stalagmites. This pristine area boasts high biological diversity, and you can even paddle your own boat around the caves. Tours usually include a visit to Ha Pagoda on Ngo Dong River, Bai Dinh Temple, and the old capital of Hoa Lu.

  • Nice place to visit in North Vietnam. However it is crowded after Lunar New year. You can combine with Bai Dinh Pagoda

  • During the four weeks in Vietnam, this tour was my absolute favorite! The landscape is magical and breathtaking. You can choose between three tours that differ between more temples or more caves or more landscape. My pictures were taken on tour three. On all tours you will travel through this wonderful landscape in a small rowing boat with four people. Because the boats don't have motors, this place is very quiet and you can enjoy the beautiful scenery and small caves. The price is around $10 (per seat) but it's worth it. For me a must visit in Vietnam! Highly recommended.
  • This place is a must visit and my favorite in North Vietnam. Its a UNESCO world heritage site and the boat trip to the river and caves are really worth visiting and for the price of $35 which includes lunch, hotel pick up and drop off, a temple and local village tour is very much worth the cost. The boat ride was very serene and peaceful because you hear nature and the boat oar motion on the water only... i love the scenery and greenery of the limestone karst and forest. I highly recommend this tour
