The mountain top descends, bringing with it the typical essence of the limestone mountains, creating magical cave walls. Over millions of years, not only did it create countless caves, but the accumulated water also created a poetic river flowing around Trang An. Therefore, traveling by boat is the most popular choice when traveling to Trang An.

Can tourists choose flexible travel routes?

Currently, tourists cannot choose destinations into flexible routes when choosing to take a sightseeing boat. Visitors can only choose to visit one of the three pre-determined tour routes that Booking Vietnam Tour has provided above.

However, there are still some tips for you if you want to have a “flexible” travel route by asking questions about the places you want to go to the boat driver and asking them for advice and flexible support. However, this is also an “illegal” option, so I still advise you not to abuse this method.

So, is there any way to freely visit destinations in Trang An according to your preferences? The answer is yes. You can choose another, more free tour option, but you will need to drive the boat yourself and have certain experience – that is the service.Kayaking – this is a method of travel that allows you to freely explore the Trang An heritage complex at your own pace and see beautiful sights that you wouldn’t be able to see from a tour boat.
