Ninh Binh is beautiful! We particularly liked the 2-hour tour with the bamboo boat and the ascent to Hang Mua. We would have gladly given the temple at the beginning of the tour as a gift and of course it takes a 20-strong tour group to move from A to B. This meant that we arrived 30 minutes late at our accommodation "Ecolodge". Being dropped off in the middle of nowhere and walking down a bumpy path alone with our suitcases made us feel unwelcome. Nevertheless, the landlady prepared an excellent dinner for us. The next day the taxi driver didn't come. Apparently they had forgotten us. However, the Vietnamese have an incredible talent for organization. A taxi came roaring and took us to a minibus. So it went over country over hill and dale to the Aspira Cruse. We probably got the honeymoon suite for that. Top! great crew food ok The big bus back with wifi was very comfortable and safe.

Amazing boat trip! Met some really great people from all over the world and Cong was a wonderful guide. He kept us entertained the whole time and the food was delicious and plentiful

Sehr schönes Boot, wunderbares Essen. Alles war perfekt.

Our ship is as great , food amazing and service great.

It was a great day a few stairs to get into the cave.
