2012 Aug 2-7 Hanoi, Halong Bay, Cat Ba Island & Ninh Binh - Part 3/3

Our last excursion in Hanoi is to Ninh Binh..... Going on a Hoa Lu - Tam Coc tour (USD 19). Tam Coc is often known as Halong Bay on land as the scenery is similar to Halong Bay. Frankly I prefer this place to the infamous Halong Bay where its over populated by people and pretty polluted too...... all too soon, we may not even have Halong Bay to enjoy anymore!

The travel to Ninh Binh takes about 2 hours with one stop.
The place has more to offer and one may even do an overnight trip to this place. There are public buses available to Ninh Binh but we have opted to go on a tour instead. This so to "save on timing" as we only had one day.

It started to rain!

Boat ride on Boi River

Gone are the days where we use hands to row.. they are skillful!

Amazing scenery

This completes my little travel diary in Vietnam
