10.15: Rowing boat ride Tam Coc without the crowds

Embark on a rowed boat, gently gliding on exquisite Ngo Dong River amid dramatic natural sceneries of a maze of jungle-clad Limestone Mountains rose majestically out of flooded rice paddy fields. The highlights are secret passages of stalagmite caves so-called Hang Ca, Hang Hai, and Hang Ba leaded into hidden valleys and opening up views of one stupendous vista after another. The tranquility, except the sound of the mirrored water and the oar lapping against the water feels like stepping back in time or into another world.
