09:00 AM: We'll stop for a short break within 15 - 20 minutes, allowing you some time to stretch and relax.

10:30 AM: Next, we'll check out Hoa Lu, which was Vietnam's capital a long time ago, from 968 to 1010. It's a great place to learn about Vietnam's history back in the days of the Dinh, Le, and Ly Dynasties.

Enjoy a boat trip navigating through breathtaking caves such as Light Cave (Hang Sang), Dark Cave (Hang Toi), and Cooking Wine Cave (Hang Nau Ruou), set against the backdrop of a verdant river and landscapes.

04:00 PM: Hop on the bus headed for Mua Cave, often referred to as Dancing Cave. You should prepare for a bit of a hike as you ascend nearly 500 steps to the top of Lying Dragon Mountain. Once at the peak, you'll have an amazing panoramic view of Tam Coc.
