Perfume Pagoda Day Tour from Hanoi

Save
Share
Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin with pickup at your hotel in Hanoi, and travel into the countryside by air-conditioned bus. Enjoy views of rural communities as the city traffic gives way to fields and villages, then disembark at Yen Vi Wharf, where you’ll board a boat on the Yen Vi River.

    Navigate downstream past rolling green hills and limestone mountains, then return to shore at Duc Wharf. This tour includes round-trip access to the Perfume Pagoda cable car, so you can reach the mountain shrine without climbing the steep, slippery footpath up the mountain. Get high above the river as the cable car approaches the summit, and continue by foot on the light hike to Huong Tich Grotto.

    Enter the grotto to see Buddhist shrines sheltered by limestone walls, then tour the rest of the Perfume Pagoda, a series of important pilgrimage sites for Vietnamese Buddhists. Pause at a local restaurant for lunch before descending by cable car for the return trip to Hanoi. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

    Went with children aged 9 and 10. It was a 40 degree day so review is tempered by this. We had expectations of seeing local scenery, a nice boat ride and high quality attractions. Air conditioned bus ride was satisfactory, and the guide had good English for the customers. The

    This was a full day trip, but we found it a long day and not really enough of interest to make us go wow, yes the Temples were interesting but you don't spend much time there (nor is there enough to do if you wanted to stay longer) and the novelty of the boat trip where you are

    The boat trip was an enjoyable and pleasant trip up river to the small village affording excellent views of the mountains. The actual trip up to the pagoda and the mountain top views via cable car are spoilt by the hideous shops/stalls with vendors selling local food stuffs

    This was a busy trip with lots to see and do. A two hour bus journey took us to our destination with the previous booked stop for coffee (gift buying). On arrival we got into a rowing boat with 6 of us plus the guide rowed up the river by a woman who looked as if she was in her

    I was the only English speaking person on my particular trip. The guide worked hard to ensure that I was ok, although understandably he spoke predominantly in Vietnamese for those customers. Unfortunately this meant that at times I was unsure what was going on and didn’t get the
