Trang An Eco – complex
Located 100 km from Hanoi, Trang An Eco-complex is a part of Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex, a 2000-square-kilometer area that hosts various tourist attractions, ranging from natural scenery to religious architecture. Boasting the nickname of Inland Halong Bay, Trang An Eco-complex is packed with limestone mountains, jungle, caves and river. The most popular way to travel through this area is on small rowing boats. Cruising on serpentine river of sparkling emerald water, tourists will feel immersed in the refreshing atmosphere and enthralled by the spectacular scenery.
The boats will take you to the limestone caves along the river. More precisely, you will go under the mountains by boat. There are 9 caves in total and each has its own shape, size and formation. Some caves are so big that once you are inside, everything is surrounded by darkness and you cannot even see their end. Some has its own historical legend such as Wine-brewing cave, which is believed to have some connection with Dinh Tien Hoang, the ancient king who unified Vietnam a millennium ago. At some points of the journey, the water is so calm and clear that you can see the algae and fish floating and swimming below.
Where the nostalgic and poetic ambiance can be felt from the quiet corner of the streets to the mossy walls of imposing citadel, Hue is a city of its own class. Being the capital of Vietnam from 1802 to 1945, Hue hosts an array of old palaces, citadels, tombs, and temples. Magnificent as the impression that these structure may give, Hue, contradictorily, is renowned for its solemnity and quietness. Maybe this can be traced to the history of Hue, the last imperial capital of the last dynasty of Vietnam, and later on a city that suffered unimaginable horror during the bloody Vietnam War. No matter what the reason is, Hue can be aptly compared to a lady that harbors deeply in her heart a sad story that manifests in the poetic atmosphere of the city.
Endless words and phrases of poem have been invented to describe the dazzling charm of Huong River, the most precious treasure of Hue. However, the beauty of the river is beyond word, especially at sunset when you have to see it to believe it. The experience of stepping into a Romantic painting!
Though no longer the capital of Vietnam, Hue can still proudly boast its title of the center of Vietnamese cuisine. Once home to the most extravagant dynasty, Hue’s cuisine has developed into an art, with every dish being perfect from the look to the taste and encompassing the finest of Vietnamese gastronomy.
