New boat tours to recently-studied routes deep inside the Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex opened to tourists on 17 February. This location was recently featured in “Kong: Skull Island,” a massive Hollywood production.
The new routes include Trinh Temple – May Cave; Dat Linh Cave; and Van Cave – Quy Minh Temple – Vu Lam military basement. Trinh Temple has a history spanning more than 1,000 years while Quy Minh Temple is notable for its recent restoration.
Those interested in history will be attracted to the Vu Lam military basement of the first emperors of the Tran Dynasty (1225-1400) built after they defeated Mongol invaders. Caves will provide adventure trips for those interested in exploration, especially May Cave with its stalactite formations, and the pristine Dia Linh Cave, the longest in Trang An at two kilometres.
Each boat tour costs VND 200,000 (USD 8.80) per person.
