Vietnam Day Tours will bring you to Hoa Lu, the capital town of Vietnam about 100 km south of Hanoi under the Dinh and Le Dynasties between 968 and 1009 AD. A number of the sanctuaries and tombs have survived the years and may still be seen today. King Dinh TIen Hoang decided the location for his new capital inside the rugged mountains, around is the system of water currents as the natural barries, very important for defense as well as agriculture.
The area is also one of great natural beauty with majestic limestone peaks is often same to surpass of Halong bay. You'll enjoy being rowed along the Boi river in ancient boats, that makes for a very memorable experience.
We leave Hanoi at 08.00 and head south for the two hour drive along Highway One. We spend one hour visiting the Dinh and Le sanctuaries. These are the two remaining temples of the ancient citadel of Hoa Lu. The first is dedicated to Dinh Tien Hoang (also known as Dinh Bo Linh), an Emperor from the Dinh Dynasty. The second commemorates the rulers of the Le Dynasty. Dinh Bo Linh successfully conquered Vietnam’s first independent rulers, the Ngo Dynasty. On his death in 980, General Le Hoan wisely married Dinh’s widow and established the Le Dynasty and enlarged the citadel.
We then move on to Tam Coc for a two and a half hour boat trip along the Boi River. This area is rightly often referred to as the Ha Long Bay on land due to the similar topography. We return back to Hanoi at 6pm
