2 days, 1 night


The Nature Lover tour offers you the perfect opportunity for a break from the city, and only a two and a half hour drive out of Hanoi. You’ll have many opportunities to take photos as you explore Trang An’s limestone karsts and rice fields by boat and visit Cuc Phuong National Park, as well as Van Long Nature Reserve. Our guide will teach you about Vietnam flora and fauna, and you’ll visit the Endangered Primate Rescue Centre. Talking of primates, you’ll also visit the location where Kong: Skull Island was filmed!

Day 1: Hanoi – Hoa Lu - Bich Dong - Trang An

Our private car will pick you up from your hotel in Hanoi at 8AM and drive to Hoa Lu, the ancient capital of the Dinh and Le dynasties. We’ll then visit the Bich Dong Pagoda, located on top of a mountain with stunning views. Lunch will be provided at a local restaurant. You’ll then hop aboard a bout to explore Trang An, a Unesco World Heritage Natural Site. The boat ride is approximately two hours long, taking you through rice fields, limestone mountains and caves. You’ll then check-in to your hotel (or homestay?) and have dinner.

Day 2: Trang An - Cuc Phuong National Park - Van Long Nature Reserve - Hanoi

After breakfast we’ll visit Cuc Phuong National Park. Here you’ll walk around the Endangered Primate Rescue Centre. A guide will help you learn about the park’s fauna and flora. After lunch at a local restaurant, you’ll visit Van Long Nature Reserve where Kong: Skull Island was filmed. If you are lucky, you might see thousands of birds flying over the rice paddies, so have your camera ready! From here we’ll drive back to Hanoi, arriving at about 6PM.
