Hoa Lu and Tam Coc are two most beautiful sceneries of Ninh Binh province, just 100 km southeast of Ha Noi. Hoa Lu is the Ancient Royal capital under Dinh dynasty and pre-Le dynasty which was lasted 41 years (968-1009).In comparison with Hoa Lu, Tam Coc is considered as Ha Long Bay on land because of its beauty and charm. Sitting on boat enroute Tam Coc, one is enclosed by the scenic beauty of huge rocks standing along river and scattered green rice fields, all combining to form a poetic painting of the countryside.
