Hoa Binh Reservoir

Boat trips are difficult to arrange independently so are best organised through a travel agent — try Hoa Binh Tourism, at the Hoa Binh Hotel, or book in Hanoi.

At the time of writing, the only day trips of the reservoir available departed from Hanoi although Hoa Binh Tourism claims "all tours on demand are available", so see how you go.

Wherever you book, it's likely to be a private tour and include visits to some villages. The scenery is beautiful so it's well worth a trip if you can arrange it.
