Visit Hoa Lu Old Citadel with Dinh Temple and Le Temple

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.

Rowing boat trip in Tam Coc (Three caves)

We then move on to Tam Coc for a three hour boat trip along the Boi River. This area is rightly often referred to as the Halong Bay on land due to the similar topography. We return back to Hanoi at 6pm.
