    Had a few days in Hanoi, so I spent some time on a trip. This made me not regret it at all. Who would have thought that not far away from Hanoi has such beautiful and serene landscapes? The services and food on the tour were adjusted well to suit me. My tour guide was so nice and experienced.

    This trip left me in awe many times. The capital city Hanoi, may be chaotic during peak hours with people going to work, but wandering around is still so much fun. The crowded shops and streets are interesting to see. Ninh Binh and Halong are perfect for relaxation and resetting your mind. Incredibly peaceful and soothing. If you’re thinking about it, you should definitely give this itinerary a try.
