After disembarking the ship, you’ll set off by coach through the countryside of Ha Long. Along the way, you will see seemingly endless rice fields, and the daily activities of local people tending their farms along the highway. Upon arrival at Yen Tu Monastery, you can stroll around the main hall of the temple to explore the long history of Buddhism, which is presented through pictures on the walls and ceiling. At a typical village nearby, meet the locals for a chance to exchange culture and lifestyle information. You’ll see their rice fields and learn about their daily lives. Leaving the village, you will re-board the coach to return to Ha Long, visiting the local market before returning to the pier.

Notes:

Wear comfortable walking shoes.
