Tam Coc is a must go place.. I would definitely rate this well above Halong bay.. its so much more quiet and remote and peaceful.. Although there are a lot of boats playing this river, these are only row boats.. The locals here are so skilled at rowing that they are extremely efficient, in ROWING WITH THEIR FEET..!! Its amazing...
I went to Tam Coc in early June, a wonderful experience. You will be comfortable watching the golden rice fields, taking pictures, making farmers, etc ... Thank Ms Lily recommed .
