Morning (Departure At 8am)
Before starting to ride this one-day motorbike tour Hoa Lu & Tam Coc, we will have a short briefing to let you know about the rules. In addition, the guide will show you how to understand him by his body language.
Ride to the south of Hanoi for ~90 km on National Highway 1, and then follow the little road (~8 km) through rice fields to Hoa Lu. Around 10:30 we propose to visit two temples in Hoa Lu, Dinh Dynasty (968-980) and Early Le Dynasty (980-1009). This is the old capital of Vietnam with the natural protection afforded by the region’s bizarre landscape.
After lunch, ride on the back road of Yen Ngua Mountain along the mountain range, snaking through limestone 8 km until Linh Xuan village. The road is narrow but newly sealed and easy to ride. There is a possibility to take many photos of this region and the landscape look like Halong Bay without water. We can talk with local people we meet on the way and have a cup of tea with them. Then there are two roads: Ride to Ninh Binh for ~1 km from Linh Xuan village (or straight from Linh Xuan village) to Tam Coc and finally Bich Dong (~8 km) to visit the 3 pagodas, of which two are built into the cave. We propose a short boat trip (~30 minutes) to discover the 700-m cave under the mountain.
We try to arrive in Hanoi before 5pm to avoid rush hours. Otherwise, you should be good with city traffic from the experience you got during the day.
