Bai Dinh Trang An Deluxe Group Tour.
BDTA/1D - 2018 Sep-Dec
This is a standard tour option including entrance fees, English-speaking guide, lunch, electric car, and transportation.
Exploring Bai Dinh and Trang An from Hanoi alone means taking buses or trains, and using cabs once there. This guided full-day tour eliminates the hassles, whisking you around both sights with ease. Plus, your package includes an electric car in Bai Dinh, a sampan cruise around Trang An’s karsts and grottoes, and lunch in between, so everything is laid out. Upgrade to a deluxe tour for extra comfort.
What to Expect
Book your preferred option and depart your Hanoi Old Quarter hotel by air-conditioned vehicle for Ninh Binh. Situated south of Hanoi, this largely rural province is studded with limestone karsts that rise over serene rice paddies and rivers.

Arrive at Bai Dinh Pagoda, one of Vietnam’s biggest temple complexes, and ride an electric cart around the ancient and new statue-filled temples to see highlights, including a huge 32-foot (10-meter) image of Buddha.

After a restaurant lunch of dishes, such as goat meat with elderberry, continue to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Trang An, where the limestone karsts, interlaced with grottoes and cliffs, are at their most beautiful.

Board a shared, hand-rowed sampan for a cruise past emerald-forested cliffs and peaks and through mountain tunnels onto hidden rivers. Don’t forget your camera to capture the scenery.
Your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off in Hanoi.

Really great experience!

I went on this trip alone and it was amazing. The temple was a really cool experience and not as many steps as I thought it would be. There was one part of steep stairs but that was about it. The caves were really cool,...More

Pleasant, short and basic tour

Overall the trip is considered good given the packed 9hrs tour for 2 attractions with pre/post journey with bike traffic at Old Qtr. Thumbs up to Kimi, the guide. He is humorous and enthusiastic about his job. The tourist bus (25seaters) used is rather cramped...More
