Hanoi / Vietnam - Ninh Binh Waterways

Discover the extraordinary beauty of Vietnam’s Ninh Binh province on this overnight extension to a stay in the city of Hanoi. Known as ‘Halong Bay on land’, Ninh Binh was the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in Vietnam and is largely undiscovered. Explore the hanging cliffs, natural rainforest, clear water basins and vast network of underground streams and caverns of the Van Long Nature Reserve in a small sampan and by bicycle on this three day discovery. Walk around the village to visit Bich Dong Pagoda which was built by the collective and missionary works of two Buddhist monks. The extraordinary beauty of the province, surrounded by rice paddies and towering limestone, makes its presence felt in some of the most dramatic scenes from director Régis Wargnier classic 1992 film Indochine starring Catherine Deneuve. Before heading back to Hanoi, discover Phat Diem Town and visit the Cathedral with its pagoda-style roofs.
