Enjoy an Excursion in “Halong Bay on Land” at Weekend

Located in the heart of Da River in Cao Phong District, Hoa Binh Province, Thung Nai is an ideal place for a short trip at weekend to enjoy the harmony of the water, mountains and gentle people.

The charming pier, the scenery of Thung Nai comes out as beautiful as a picture in front of your eyes. A large lake is surrounded by rolling mountains with hidden islands in the middle. That’s why Thung Nai is also known as "Ha Long Bay on land".
