- Try out the life of a Vietnamese farmer
- Visit one of Vietnam’s most stunning natural spectacles
This interesting ecotourism experience in Vietnam’s beautiful Ninh Binh province sees you trying out life as a Vietnamese farmer in the scenic village of Tho Ha, learning how to catch fish in the traditional manner as well as a range of other activities. You’ll take a short, easygoing cycle around the village to explore the area too, with a local lunch provided at a stilt house, before going on to see the famous Galaxy Grotto, one of the region’s most awe-inspiring natural wonders.
The Galaxy Grotto has only become a tourist attraction in recent years but it already has a glowing reputation. You will be rowed out in a traditional sampan onto the river, then enter the large cave on foot. Set within the stunning limestone karsts for which this region is well-known, the grotto has many alluring stalactites. Keep your voice low as you explore - there are thousands of bats asleep at the top! This Hanoi day trip takes you into the beautiful rural countryside, Ninh Binh rapidly becoming a must-visit destination for travellers in the know.
