In the spring, Tam Coc embodies a vast green color of rice fields along the two sides of the river, creating a poetic and majestic setting.

Lan Ha Bay itself is more beautiful and less touristy than Halong Bay. The Lan Ha Bay is at the southern end of Halong Bay – well away from the boat crush to the north. It has the same karst limestone outcrops and in addition, it even has white sandy beaches and more islands. Here you can do kayaking, enjoy a bamboo boat ride into Bright Cave, swimming, trekking and cycling to visit Viet Hai village which was absolutely secluded from the outside world ...
Ban Gioc Waterfall is the largest and most beautiful waterfall in Vietnam. Water crashes down 70 meters over 3 levels and stretches over 208 meters wide. It is located on the Quay Son River, the Vietnam China border. This is in the far northeast of Vietnam in the largely rural province of Cao Bang.
The waterfall itself is located about 350km north of Hanoi. It is roughly 85km northeast of Cao Bang city. Though it is far from Hanoi but it's definitely worth to visit.
