Planning to travel to Hanoi? Be sure to do a day trip to Tam Coc!

If you’re planning to travel to Hanoi, Vietnam, consider doing a day trip to Tam Coc. It is also known as the Ha Long Bay on land with beautiful limestone karts surrounded by rice fields. I joined a day tour from my hotel in Hanoi to visit Tam Coc, which means three caves. We were picked up by a van and it took roughly 2.5 hours to get there. Tam Coc is also known as Ha Long Bay on land since there are karst limestone cliffs surrounded by rice fields rather than the sea. The tour included a bicycle ride through a village called Van Lam and then a little trip down the Ngo Dong River. We rowed through the Hang Ca, Hang Hai, and Hang Ba caves on a rowboat rowed by women. The best part of the boat ride was the woman who was maneuvering the boat rowed with her legs rather than her arms.
