After a 2-hour car trip to Ninh Binh province, we'll arrive at the floating village of Kenh Ga (Chicken Canal). The village gets its name from the wild chickens that used to live in the area.

There is no other place in Vietnam that combines the beauty and simplicity of a floating village with an eye-catching backdrop of limestone cliffs. You'll also get to see one major difference: people in Kenh Ga row boats with their feet, leaning back so they can watch the world go by.

In Kenh Ga, you'll get to enjoy a 3-hour boat trip to contemplate the beauty of the natural landscape, before visiting the hotsprings and Van Trinh Cave.

After having lunch, you'll continue with a trip to Hoa Lu, the "ancient capital" of Vietnam. Here you'll get to visit the two Temples of King Dinh and King Le.

We'll drive back back to your hotel in Hanoi around 17:30.
