New experience : catching fish in Tam Coc

With our new guests, we went to Tam Coc for a new experience in the Ninh Binh province. There, after discovering the beautiful landscapes of this part of Vietnam, our guets could try to learn how to fish in the rivers of Tam Coc. Our guide brought them to the river and told them how they had to fish with smal wooden baskets. It is a traditionnal way to fish in Vietnam.

Our guests enjoyed a lot catching fish in the river ! They were wet but happy !

Our guests were very good fishermen or very lucky because they catched a lot of fish ! This was impressive !


Staying overnight at bungalow

After fishing party, our guest went to the bungalow near the mountains of Ninh Binh. These confortable bungalows provided a peaceful experience. Staying overnight in the middle of the vietnamese nature is wonderful. Our guests were glad to stay there and enjoyed a lot the local food of Ninh Binh. For dinner, they could taste the fish they catched in the river !
