Shall we take a trip to Quan Lan Beach in Quang Ninh? 

I have been working in the travel industry field for a long time, also visiting many places so I often ask my friends places to visit with my family. Like every day, this morning I received a call from my friend, he asked me how Quan Lan island is, should he go or not? So, by the way, Hanoi travel bus would like to share with you guys about Quan Lan Island in Quang Ninh.

First of all, Quan Lan Island is the outermost island of the Northern Gulf, including Quan Lan and Minh Chau communes of Van Don District, Quang Ninh Province. This is an island located in Bai Tu Long Bay, in the north of our country which has a relatively small area.

To go to Quan Lan Island, you can take the express boat or normal train with different prices and different services, depending on your own financial conditions, so you can choose vehicles for yourself.

When it comes to the scenery, Quan Lan Island is famous for its beautiful scenery, including forest and sea. On Quan Lan island, Son Hao is the most beautiful beach of the island, and also the most pristine beach in the northern of our country. Son Hoa beach has not exploited yet, so it still preserves the natural beauty that nature offers.

Son Hoa beach has a dreamy landscape with lush green flying in the wind, with blue sea water in the interrupter and white sand beach, the waves pushing into the white foam floating coast. The next island is Quan Lan beach, which is stretched beach with wide sandy beach, located near the center so it attracts quite a lot of tourists to come over. The third is Minh Chau beach, which owns a semi-circular sandy beach with mild wind, clear blue water as well as peaceful space.

Visiting the sea, you should not miss the sunrise or sunset, because it is really a stunning and immense feature of the sea. At the same time, Quan Lan Island also has a forest of over a hundred years old which shades and brings the original beauty, grandeur of creativity.

Quan Lan Island is not only well-known for beautiful scenery, but also a place to store and prove the spiritual beauty of the Vietnamese people with populations of temples, pagodas, temples, … all of these are full of ancient and spiritual mysterious. 

In addition to the spectacular scenery and monuments, you can also experience the real life of the people on the island like using fishing net, squid fishing, snail digging, digging, etc. together with the people on the island. If you are bored, you can ride a bike or ride a motorbike around the island to find out their life. It will be an enjoyable and memorable experience for this summer vacation.

After getting tired, you can treat yourself or your family a delicious meal with fresh seafood which is processed meticulously, elaborately or you yourself can process it in your own ways.

The landscape of the island is attached to the forest, with the sea, with spiritual features… all blend together has created a unique island.

According to history books, Hoa Lu ancient capital and Dinh King’s parallel sentences, we find that: Hoa Lu old is a magnificent palace, just as beautiful as Truong An “Co Viet Quoc Duong Tong Khai Bao – Hoa Lu Do Thi Han Truong An… . Geographically, you will understand why when you go to King Dinh Tien Hoang to choose Hoa Lu as the capital because: the mountains spread around the capital as the screen; The Hoang Long River meandering and rice fields Nho Quan, Gia Vien vast natural trenches are very favorable military. Hoa Lu with rocky mountain ranges, rivers around, as a solid trench is very convenient for defense and fighting. Hoa Lu is south of Ngu Mountain, forming a solid wall. The west is protected by the Truong Yen. The north is Hoang Long River. A tributary of the Hoang Long River flows through the Bo River to Hoa Lu Cave – the first base of Dinh Bo Linh.

Over the past ten centuries, the historical relics in Hoa Lu ancient capital are almost destroyed. The remaining temples of King Dinh and King Le Temple were built in the 17th century on the foundations of old palaces, which are considered two of the most important, unique and typical relics. From the entrance gate, King Dinh Tien Hoang Temple is located on the left hand side, while King Le Dai Hanh Temple is located on the right hand side.

King Dinh Temple is located in Truong Yen Commune, Hoa Lu District, on a 5 hectare site, which is one of the important relics of the ancient ruins of Hoa Lu.

All the wooden columns are piled up on columns and stone thresholds about 60 cm high. These are the architectural remains of the Nguyen Dynasty in the 10th Thanh Thai.

Hoa Lu ancient capital is an architectural complex, and each of the architecture has its own characteristics, all of which make up the ancient and grandeur of ancient history. Historical vestiges still remain in the complex of rich and diverse relics, including the architecture of the walls, the citadel, caves, temples, tombs and many other valuable architectural works about history and culture.

Especially, there are still two relics of King Dinh and King Le. These are two monuments built around the 17th century with stone carving art which is extremely amazing and distinctive. The way to King Dinh Temple led visitors to go under the canopy of trees along the roadside.

For example, when entering the temple grounds, visitors will see the stone floor and two monks are also carved with monolithic green stone.
