2 day excursion: Phú Thọ Province – hot spring baths resort
February 22, 2019 @ 9:00 AM - February 23, 2019 @ 4:00 PM
This trip was moved from last December
Join us on a fun, and at times quirky, 2-day trip to Thanh Thủy District in Phú Thọ Province located 74 km, east of Hanoi where we spend time at a hot springs resort which opened a few years ago. It is set on Blue Pearl Island located along the Đà River which has a hot spring stream flowing underground. The resort has 5 different (+40C) mineral baths to choose from under one roof: very hot, lemon, tea, herbs and 1 normal small swimming pool.
This is definitely a local non-tourist experience.
We include a Friday in this trip as its very quiet on this day, usually we have the whole resort to ourselves so it is very peaceful , before the local Hanoians arrive on Saturday – which is also a very interesting experience.
The resort is set in landscaped grounds complete with its own quirky statues.
On the Friday we stop off for lunch on the way to the resort.
Dinner in the local village and Saturday lunch in a local restaurant on the way back to Hanoi.

- Return mini bus
- Water on the mini bus
