The Trang An boat tour

Hoa Lu was the ancient capital city of Vietnam from 968 to 1009. Here, kings under Dinh and Le dynasties built a citadel surrounded by karst-mountains. After a long period being suffered from the destruction of wars and weather, what remain now are the two sacred temples of our kings and a part of the old palace.

Hoa Lu Temples

Further down 2km from Tam Coc, Bich Dong Pagoda lies behind big trees and mountains. It is known as one of the oldest pagodas in town. Tourists will be impressed by the traditional architecture and the amazing work by the old people to build a pagoda on mountains.
