Water Puppet Tours


With its numerous national parks, white sand beaches, colourful villages, pagodas and ancient monuments, forests and islands, Vietnam is a land of often surprising beauty, offering cultural depth and history, increasingly combined with tourism-friendly areas offering all the facilities a modern traveller could wish for.

Vietnam’s people are its greatest asset: gregarious, friendly and eager to meet visitors. In the bustling cities, the often chaotic streets contrast ox carts with limousines, ancient rituals with sophisticated technology, and are ruled by the ubiquitous moped.

Our strength is in translating these opportunities into detailed, practical itineraries. We do luxury travel and event planning, as well as a wide range of beach, family, honeymoon, adventure, golf, veteran and cultural tours.

There is no better way to experience a destination than through the perspective of the local people. At Water Puppet Tours, this key element of local insight drives every step of our process of tour design and delivery. We provide tailor-made tours individually crafted for each client, achieving this by emphasizing the direct working relationship between the client and the tour designer and operator.

Kayaking and Hiking In Ba Be Lake 2 Days

Day 1: Hanoi - Ba Be Lake Kayaking (Lunch, Dinner, Guide) – 5 hours kayaking

You will leave Ha Noi at 07.00hrs and head towards Ba Be National Park driving through the mountainous provinces of Thai Nguyen and Bac Kan.  Along the way, you will enjoy the marvelous views of rice paddies, tea plantations and bamboo paddle wheels on the banks of the river. You will have lunch en-route in a local restaurant and try several local dishes.  Upon arrival in Boc Lom quay, you will transfer to your kayaks and paddle down the Nang River towards Ba Be Lake.  You will enjoy the dramatic landscapes of chalky cliffs, not bare, but with small wild gardens clinging to the flanks, lianas with their long roots seeking the earth.  You will visit the Puong Cave, studded with stalagmites and stalactites and home to thousands of bats (18 different species) before continuing on to Ba Be Lake and Bo Lu Village where you will check in and have dinner in Mr Linh's Homestay, a beautiful Tay traditional house

Day 2: Ba Be Lake - Hua Ma Cave - Hanoi (Breakfast, Lunch, Guide) 2-4km hiking

After breakfast, you walk around the lake shore to enjoy the sunrise and you also get a view of the whole lake from a high viewpoint.  You will visit the village of Pac Ngoi where the Tay people make their living by fishing and farming. You will also see many local stills where the villages make their corn wine. You continue to the Hua Ma cave, one of the least touristy caves not only in the north but in the whole of Vietnam, which locals still regard as a religious site.  You will drive back to Thai Nguyen Province having lunch on the way at a local restaurant.  You arrive back at Hanoi late in the afternoon
