The temples were magnificent when they were pictures, but in fact, in Japan, they weren't much different from what they were, and I wasn't very impressed. Let's choose a bicycle for cycling. Lunch felt better than expected. Boating on the river is quite long. Let's finish the toilet. You can relax quite a bit. On the other hand, there was no radio wave of the mobile phone, so I was able to relax. It seems that the tip gives 20,000 dong per person. Even if a grandmother does a very harsh boat rowing without taking a rest alone, even a Japanese who dislikes the tip culture naturally wants to give a tip.

It's a great tour! The staff both online and during the trip were really nice, spoke decent English and tried their best to make this trip a succes. The busride was not too long and there is a stop halfway so you can go to the bathroom or eat something. During the temple visit we were given the option to go by ourselfs or go with the guide, and she gave us a lot of information and was very clear about the times and places where we should gather. The lunch was nice with a lot of options and there was a swimmingpool we could use (I recommand bringing a swimsuit and a towel). We didn't go biking because it was very hot that day and everybody wanted to stay near the swimmingpool. The highlight of the tour was the boattrip in Trang An. The scenery is beautiful and very quiet. The boats will take you over lakes and through small caves which gives it a bit of a mysterious feeling. I highly recommand this tour. It's not too touristy and you can enjoy the beautiful scenery in peace.

Beautiful Place!

I got picked up from the hostel 8am, but a lady messaged me that night and she said 8:30. So good thing i was ready. The tour guide Trung speaks good english and knowledgeable. Also friendly.. the bus ride was smooth but the chairs were small and uncomfortable.. we visited the temple, went cycling and went to trang an. The kong island was very nice. Lunch had lots of options, but they let you buy drinks. They only give you 2 small bottles. The weather was too hot and its not enough. Had to buy every time. Bottles at the bus stops are pricey so I suggest buying before hand or if you get parking lot to the boat ride at trang an. Wear sunscreen, hat or you can bring your umbrella too.
