When does my tour start?

On this 5-hour tour, you will be able to get a glimpse of village life in Halong Bay.

You will be picked up from the Cruise port at 11:30am, and driver for approx. 1 hour before you reach Yen Duc Village.  The village is rich in culture as the locals who live here still keep to the tradition of rice cultivation and farming.   The village is far from the popular cities and tourist spots and will give you a good understanding of Vietnamese Culture.

Upon arrival at the village, you will be welcomed by your guide and receive a refreshing drink.  Your tour will take you on a stroll through the village where you can explore the charming rice field, traditional house & vegetable gardens, plus meet some of the friendly locals.  The village has small charming rivers, a backdrop of historical Mountains, and is full of history including sacred legends, myths, & relics dating back to the Ly & Tran Dynasties.

On this tour you will take a stroll past fields to visit the Canh Huong Pagoda, which has legendary stories of the Vietnamese King ‘Tran Nhan’, & Buddhism in Vietnam.

You will get the chance to see a Water Puppet show, hosted by the local artists in the village pond amongst the rice fields.  Using wooden puppets, with a backdrop of a Temple Entrance, the talented puppeteers tell an amusing story of traditional local folklore.

After your tour around the village it is time to head back to the cruise port in plenty of time to meet your ships departure.
