Locals often advertise this place as "Ha Long Bay on Land" to tourists. As the name suggests, it indeed looks like Ha Long Bay. It takes 1-1.5 hours to get here from Hanoi. Ask your hotel in Hanoi or local travel agent to arrange a...More

On the long travel by boat you can see wonderful landscapes and you can hear nothing except the sounds of the forest and of the boats floating on the bright water. Really relaxing. We went on Wednesday and it was not too crowded. The skull...More

For us this involved, rivers, temples, hiking and caves. We did the three hour loop and it was perfect. I would definitely recommend it and it was super clean unlike Ha Long Bay.

Trang An Landscape Complex can be seen by a boat tour that will take from 2 to 3,5-4 hours. The complex is quite big but also safe that you can also go kayaking. While you go through the caves and reach temples with sheer beauty...More

This was a most amazing trip. A ride in a small rowing boat. expertly rowed by local women (mostly) who otherwise work on their farms. The limestone karst scenery was truly beautiful and gliding through a number of caves was also a great experience. Tip:...More

Hi, if you like nature and ruins Trang An would be better than Thung Nham. You should go to the Old Trang An and Temple of King Dinh Tien Hoang, which is near Trang An too. Hope you like it. Have a nice time!

Firstly you need to arrive Hanoi, Vietnam. You can buy the Trang An one or two days tour in ancient town of Hanoi. it would take about an hour and a half to reach there.
