Overview
A worthwhile day trip to visit Bai Dinh Pagoda and take a sampan boat trip along Trang An River in Ninh Binh, a beautiful province which features a multitude of attractions within a short distance. Bai Dinh is the largest pagoda complex with hundreds of Buddha statues and also a venerated destination for pilgrimages in Vietnam while Trang An River is the center of Trang An Complex - UNESCO World Heritage. Take this trip and you will learn more about the influence of Buddhism on the culture and witness the unbelievable beauty of nature landscape of Vietnam.
Highlights
  • Visit Bai Dinh Pagoda and UNESCO-listed Trang An in a day from Hanoi
  • Tour and learn about the sites with a guide
  • See Bai Dinh and ride a sampan around Trang An’s limestone peaks and caves
  • Lunch, entry fees, boat, and transport included, plus upgrade to deluxe tour
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.
