Early morning we’ll leave Hanoi for Xuan Thuy National Park - the first Ramsar site in Vietnam, with 3-hour driving thru the heart of the Red River Delta. Lunch at the park headquarters and have meeting and discussion with the ranger about the bird species and its habitation. In the afternoon, we will be going around for bird watching by Telescopes provided by the Park. Dinner and overnight at the Park’s Guesthouse.

Full day of bird watching started with a boat trip around the wetland area, including Lu and Vanh Islets and thru mangrove forest. This area is the seagate of the Red River, the second biggest one in Vietnam, originated from China mainland which makes the fertile Red River Delta. If we come here in wintertime, we could have very potential chances to see special species of birds of East Asia - Australia flyway such as Black-faced Spoonbill, Spoon-billed Sandpiper, Spotted Greenshank, Saunders's Gull, Asian Dowitcher etc. Packed lunch served during the trip. Dinner and overnight at the Park’s Guesthouse.

As one full day would possibly not satisfy the bird watchers, we’ll continue a morning trip today around Ngan area to watch the rests of hundreds of bird species you may have never seen. Lunch at the park headquarters, take a break before returning to Hanoi late afternoon.

End of services at your accommodation in Hanoi.
