We then have a short break before starting our energetic afternoon by visiting Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex! The outstanding natural beauty of this majestic limestone massif rises 20 square kilometers dramatically out from rice paddy fields. Deep into the linked chains of towering mountains are pristine natural landscapes, mystical valleys, numerous freshwater ponds, and jungles stretching as far as the eye can see.

You can book a boat here and enjoy the spacious space. free your mind with numerous wild,  natural, and mysterious caves, such as Lam Cave, Vang Cave, Dai Cave, Thanh Truot Cave, Cao Son Temple, Suoi Tien Temple, and Vu Lam Temple,…

Come up from the boat, now we will discover Mua Cave! Ready to conquer 486 steps to reach the highest point of Ngoa Long Mountain and see Mua Cave in very spectacular scenery! Do not forget to wear comfortable shoes for better walking on long distances and climbing.

    Our family spent 2 hours on the boat. It is really worth visiting for a day trip. The boat rider lady was really friendly and even told us the story behind of each cave name when we visit. Don’t forget to tip your boat riders!
