Lunch in Ninh Binh town, visit Hoa Lu – the capital in the late 10th century as well as the economic, political and cultural center of Dai Co Viet, an independent Vietnamese polity founded in 968 A.D. by the local warlord Dinh Bo Linh (posthumously known as Dinh Tien Hoang, or "First Dinh Emperor"). It is also so exciting to have a have a visit at this historical place in our days trips from Hanoi. Hoa Lu was the native land of the first two imperial dynasties of Vietnam: the Dinh founded by Dinh Tien Hoang, and the Early Le founded by Le Dai Hanh. Following the demise of the Le Dynasty, in 1010 Ly Cong Uan, the founder of the Ly Dynasty, transferred the capital to Thang Long (now Hanoi), and Hoa Lu became known as the "ancient capital". The tomb of Dinh Tien Hoang is located on nearby Ma Yen Mountain, while the tomb of Le Dai Hanh lies at the foot of the mountain. The peaceful sense of Ninh Binh is the highlight in our exclusively - designed day trips from Hanoi.
