    Trang An was absolutely beautiful and peaceful. We had fun riding the boat through some small caves. However, if you have a bad back or if you are big, it may be difficult, because you have to be sitting down in the small space for almost two hours. It was nice getting out of all the noise and traffic in Hanoi. I highly recommend this place to be added on your list if you are traveling to Hanoi. The tour was ok... the bus picked us up was almost 40min late and no one contacted us that they would be late. I had to call Frank myself and he told us the bus would be there in a couple of minutes, but it still took them longer than that:( In addition, the tour guide told us we had to join a different tour after lunch since other people in the tour were going to some different place....we weren't informed about that when we booked the tour so kind of surprised. After lunch, this tour information indicated electric car ride was included as optional activity, but the guide asked us if we wanted to ride a "bicycle"..we said no since it was raining pretty heavy. Then as I mentioned above, we had to wait for the another tour to come at the lunch spot so that we can join their bus to Trang An. We had to wait for quite a long time there...(wait for the first guide to come back from the bicycle activity other people did, then wait for the next tour members to show up and finish eating lunch etc...) The bus we took on the way back was much bigger and more comfortable so that part turned out good ..I just wish they could inform us in advance of such change of plan or them being late to pick us up.

    Trang An was much better than Halong bay for the day- being only 2 hours away was a good day trip from Hanoi. Although there was a lot of confusion with the tours. People going to all different places thinking they were getting different things. As well, it said the waters were crystal clear, etc. we did not see any crystal clear water on this day trip. But it was still beautiful and both the guides I had on my day trip spoke excellent English. The only other thing I would mention was that they were 30 minutes late picking me up - which is fine but no one thought to contact me.

Thầy Pagoda locates at the foot of Sài Sơn mountain, southwest of Hanoi. The pagoda is 20 kilometers far from the center of city, yet you can get there by motorbike in approximately 40 minutes. This a famous Buddhist pagoda is more than 8 centuries years old. The Pagoda is associated with Từ Đạo Hạnh 徐道行, a special Zen master of Vietnam who lived in Lý Dynasty. His reputation became a legend in memories of people of that land because of romantic anecdotes about his great magic and kindness. He had travel from lands to lands to help people without asking for return. Finally, when he is on the verge of death, Từ Đạo Hạnh went to Sài Sơn mountain (its colloquial name is Thầy mountain), and built a small pagoda named Hương Hải (it was changed into "Thầy" pagoda latter on). He died here in 1116, and accidentally in that year, King Lý Thần Tông was born. The myth that King Thần Tông was the afterlife of Từ Đạo Hạnh has been rumored from this event. However,Thầy Pagoda is not only attractive by these legends, but also charming for its ancient structures. Coming to this landscape, you will be stunned by the perfect harmony of the surrounding geography and Vietnamese traditional architecture. Visting Thầy pagoda, you will be enlightened by the beliefs of Vietnamese,people worship Buddha, God, Mother Goddess and Saint. Thầy pagoda is also famous for its mysterious limestone caves, the ancientest water puppet art of Vietnam, and enjoy a specialty of Thầy Pagoda : chè-lam cake. A trip with so much unforgettable moments, here we go :)
