Hoa Lu and Tam Coc information:

mountainsresemble the topography at Halong Bay. Biggest difference is that Tam Coc is
situated on land and contains rice paddies around. The area supports farmers with stray goats
on the karsts hillsides and fishermen. Their two sanctuaries are built in the 17th century at Hoa
Lu. They are dedicated to the Dinh and early Le dynastyin the 10th and 11th centuries. The sites
attraction consists of a stone pedestal of a royal throne, bronze bells and a statue of the
Emperors.

 

This day tour will take you to Hoa Lu, the ancient capital of Vietnam in the 10th century. We’ll
