The tour takes around 2 hours in a rowing boat in a calm stream. It's amazing how skilled the rowers are. It's better to go early morning cause it gets crowded, at least on weekends, the day that I went. The sights are breathtaking. You go through caves, rice paddies and temples. The entrance fee is about 5 dollars.

We had a one day trip to this picturesque location for a 2 hour relaxing rowing boat trip through the most beautiful lakes, caves and countryside for about £5each. We arrived at 11am and is was very quiet but it did get busier as we were on our return section with a lot more boats heading on the outward section.... More

Amazing experience with natural landscape through natural caves and nice scenery. A day trip is very sufficient that takes about 2 hrs drive and 2 to 3 hrs there to enjoy

Less crowded than Tam Coq, although you start to feel sorry for the working ladies. So make sure to paddle along with them!

Well organised and about 3 hour trip through lovely waterways. Grottos are interesting, slightly more artificial than Tam Coc - but lovely. The Pagodas are also well worth the visit. Definitely to be recommended.

This was a relaxing, if hot few hours spent being paddled though the grottos/ caves. We were not hassled about tipping and we enjoyed helping with the paddling. It was not busy on the day we were there, but there were over 1000 boats moored, so I can imagine it being very congested and less pleasant on busy days

I live part time in Hanoi and have been to many of the tourist sites. They are all very interesting and some are very beautiful, but Trang An is very special. It is not visited by tourists much and is pretty much totally appreciated by Vietnamese. I love Tam Coc, but I have to say, Trang An was much more... More

Less western tourists, less haggling than Tam Coq... Beautiful clean water and caves. Although lots of asian tourists, the area is bautiful and very friendly. Renting a motor bike to go there is exellent ,as the landscape is also beautiful
