We take a sampan ride along a river, which is used by farmers to access their paddy fields, an irresistible treat. Just relax and enjoy the sensation of being gently paddled by hand in a little boat, gliding through lotus fields (in summer) into the centre of the Halong Bay in land. Lose yourself in this unique experience, along a stretch of blue-green river, and marvel at dancing water refractions under the coolness of passing Tam Coc (three caves).
