Highly Recommended. We had a great time on this activities packed adventure to Ninh Binh. Only 2 hours from central Hanoi, the magical area of Ninh Binh could easily be in another world. Called the Halong Bay on land the endless limestone formations capture your imagination above ground while another beautiful unspoiled world exists underground in caves and chambers visited by peaceful rowing boats. We enjoyed the vistas and the temples visits and bike riding along village paths and trails, stopping to say hi to smiling local folks and watching the wildlife. Afterwards we were welcomed at the newly built and comfortable bungalows and relaxed before enjoying a delicious BBQ dinner and “happy hour” drinks. All of the meals provided were generous and gave us an opportunity to try many tasty local dishes. We didn’t use the beautiful swimming pool on this trip but gee it looked inviting! Being only 2 hours there and returning the following day, this is a great trip for anyone seeking a different, quality, event rich experience outside of Hanoi, while on a limited time schedule. Loved every minute and totally recommend this experience.
