Just 2 hours south of Hanoi, the sleepy town of Ninh Binh is surrounded by stunning limestone hills and is near the ancient capital of Hoa Lu and the river caves of Tam Coc. This guided tour will show you Vietnam's ancient capital, take you through the infamous Tam coc caves by boat and have you feasting on a delicious goat meat lunch.

  • Travel to Vietnam's ancient capital

    At 8:30 am your guide will meet you at the hotel for your 2.5 hour journey to the ancient capital of Hoa Lu. In 968, Dinh Bo Linh declared himself as the King and Hoa Lu the capital which it remained for the next 41 years (968 – 1009), of which 12 years was under the Dinh dynasty – King Dinh Tien Hoang, the country named Dai Co Viet, and 29 years later was under the Le dynasty – King Le Dai Hanh. In 1010, King Ly Thai To moved the capital from Hoa Lu to Thang Long – present day Hanoi. In Hoa Lu there are now 2 temples, one is dedicated to King Dinh Tien Hoang, the other is to King Le Dai Hanh. The visit offers a chance to know more about the feudal dynasties and historical periods in Vietnamese history.
