Photographer's Note

'Tam Coc' translates from Vietnamese to English, as 'Three Caves'. This is one of them. The region is studded with karst limestone formations, reminiscent of Ha Long Bay, & is often called 'Ha Long Bay on land'. There was an incongruous red flag, on top of the hill, but I cloned it out.

Taken from a moving sampan, so standing up to get a better pov was not an option. Tourists are rowed to all 3 caves & back. It takes about 3 hours, so bring something comfortable to sit on!
