There are a lot of interesting places worth visiting during this exciting trip.the first Mai Chau and Cuc Phuong.... And We also tasted some special food which had only in Vietnam such as rice cooked in bamboo. Travelling by boat along the river in Tam Coc was so exciting too. I saw lots of beautiful sights and took some photos when visiting to Cuc Phuong national park and some caves in Tam Coc. What a valuable experience!

Myself, my husband and two-year-old son booked a private tour in 4-day. We were collected early in the morning from Hanoi and taken to Mai Chau for a short trek between village. The first night was spent with a family in a stilt house in the village. The food here was amazing and the family were very welcoming. The scenery was gorgeous. The second day we departed to Ninh Binh early in the morning and visited Cuc Phuong National Park. Next day, we stayed at a local hotel which to be honest. We had the local speciality of various goat meats at a local restaurant. On our final day, we visited Hoa Lu (King Dinh and King Le temples). On our final day, we look a foot-rowed boat around the Tam Coc region which was fantastic. Our guide (and driver) were fantastic. They was polite, fun and interesting and his English was amazing
