Great boat trip through the caves. Good choice of restaurants. Friendly locals. Even a Lotteria BUrger joint if you are tired of Pho.

Tam coc is one of a must-see if you travel to Hanoi. Take a boat to go through 3 caves, you will see the beauty of natural wonder. The best time to visit Tam coc is May when it has yelllow rice fields. Never forget the feeling when i come here, a peaceful place.

This boat tour is really beautiful and enjoyable. It's so picturesque, we couldn't take enough picture. And seeing the woman paddle the boat by her feet was a sight in itself. As we went early morning, before all the day tourists from Hanoi arrived, there were nearly no other boats on the water, which didn't give us the over-touristic experience... More

Hoa Lu Tam Coc Cave is also considered as the second Halong Bay legend of Vietnam. Besides its historical interest, Hoa Lu Tam Coc also is a astounding natural beauty with immense limestone outcrops together with long rice field among the mountain Visatovietnam.org

We took this boat ride as part of a tour. It was peaceful and very scenic, and very hot. You must wear a hat or bring an umbrella. The boat goes through a number of low caves. Very neat to see. There was also a lot of wildlife along the river, goats and chickens and ducks. Look for the pink... More

We visited this on a day trip with one of the many excersion companies, it wasn't run brilliantly, the lunch was terrible in a big buffet place, that you wouldn't touch! There seemed to be a lot of tours all doing exactly the same. The pagoda was impressive but very much like all of the others. The boat trip however... More

We went on a guided tour of this area with Go Asia. Our hotel in Hanoi set it up for us. Our guide, Mr. Cao Kim Kien, was excellent. He fully explained the history of the area, let us know what we would experience at each section of the tour, and answered any questions we might have. He made the... More

We loved being here... It's one of the most peaceful places I've ever been... Don't forget to explore the whole area by bike, it's very "local" and the best day of our holiday...

The setting is very tranquil and beautiful, a photographer's delight. We went at a time when it wasn't so crowded, so at times we felt like the only people on the river. The guide who drove us to this place had fore warned us of the sales pitches that we would encounter on the actual tour. First they will insist... More
