I've booked a 2 day motorbike tour with Toan in early November. I was originally thinking to stay at Limestone View Homestay and have Toan show us Ninh Binh. I really wanted to experience the area vs. visiting sites, besides An Trang, if that makes sense. But in Toan's email he offered to do a 2 day of Pu Luong as an alternative. I love the idea of Pu Luong and being off the beaten path, but that Ninh Binh might be logistically easier. Also, we only want to do limited trekking as neither of us tolerate humidity well.
Here is the timeline
Day 1 - Private transfer Halong Bay after 2 day cruise to Ninh Binh or Pu Luong
Day 2 - Tour w Toan Ninh Binh or Pu Long
Day 3 - Tour w Toan Ninh Binh or Pu Long private transfer to HAN for 10pm flt to DAD
I'd love some thoughts and advice!
