A relaxing three day trip through the Red River Delta to the Ba Be National Park, where tranquillity and lazy days await you. Beat the bustle of Hanoi and experience the wonderful sights and sounds of stunning Ba Be lake.
Day 1: Hanoi – Ba Be
Be up and ready early to meet your local guide at your hotel in bustling Hanoi for your short break away from the sights and sounds of the city. You’ve got a long journey ahead of you through the flat plains of the Red River Delta and the contrasting winding roads up through the mountains, so make sure you eat a good breakfast.
After a restful pause to savour some delicious local food and unfurl your limbs we will continue along our route, taking in the scenery before reaching the tranquil Ba Be National Park in the early evening. Just in time to watch the breathtaking sunset for which this area is known. Wander through the jungle-like vegetation and enjoy the sounds of the birds before enjoying a leisurely dinner at your local accommodation, furnished in traditional style.
Day 2: Ba Be Lake
Breakfast will be served early in order to be ready for the highlight of the trip – a relaxing boat ride on this famous lake. Known for its size – it’s the biggest in Vietnam – the tour encompasses the clear lake as well as the waterfalls and little islands dotted around the water. During this extremely peaceful experience you will have the opportunity to take a refreshing dip in the clear water.
Following another tantalising meal of locally prepared food we will continue by boat to Pac Ngoi, a local settlement of ethnic Tays. Here we reach our accommodation for the night, which will be a real experience. Far from your hotel in noisy Hanoi, the traditional stilt house will be a tranquil haven for the night, and a great opportunity to find out more about local life from your gracious hosts.
Day 3: Ba Be – Hanoi
Today there is time for a leisurely breakfast before we begin the journey back to Hanoi. To break the journey we stop off at the fascinating Tay Nguyen Museum where you will have ample time to delve into the history, customs and culture of the local Tay population, and purchase a few souvenirs. Then it’s onward to Hanoi – the bright lights of the city are calling.
