Pu Luong – Ninh Binh – Halong Bay (Lan Ha) > 6 days

6 days combining 3 unmissable and magnificent destinations. The discreet but spectacular Pu Luong Nature Reserve, the peaceful and seductive Halong Bay on land Ninh Binh and finally the captivating and wonderful Lan Ha Bay. Rice terraces, cave, waterfall, river, complete with fun activities, for an invigorating and exhilarating stay! The Pu Luong Nature Reserve, which was still relatively unknown a few years ago, has experienced significant growth.

This is partly because the mountainous landscapes, the rice terraces and the ethnic minorities residing there are reminiscent of a SAPA of yesteryear, more authentic and much less frequented. The Reserve being protected, the multiplication of tourist projects does not detract from the beauty of the site. After visiting Pu Luong, you will leave for Halong Bay on land, another unmissable and splendid natural space. You’ll end up with a peaceful getaway on a traditional junk in Lan Ha Bay.
