You must choose the 2nd Tour which includes the Aboriginal village. If you choose the first route, you can only see the caves and some temples.
You will get a 3-hour-boat-tour around Trang An and a free time visiting the village. You can enjoy the view and explore this film set in 3 hours with a boat-rider.
What to pack?
Camera: A good camera is a MUST! The scenery is amazing, so you will miss a lot without a camera.
Hat: Vietnamese weather is so hot and humid, so sitting under the sun for 3 hours without a hat is not a good idea.
Some snacks: You can buy in some area, but there is not many places or restaurants around.
Comfortable shoes: You need to walk around a lot, so it’s better to wear something comfortable.
Small cash: It will be a nice gesture to tip the boat riders around 50,000 VND ~ 100,000 VND. They work really hard to provide the service, so they deserve with all that rowling. Also, they cannot work every day, and they have to clean up the area for free when they’re not working. So, a bit tip is necessary in this case.
How about a life jacket? Do you need to bring one? No, you don’t have to because it is already included in a tour.
You will follow this path to the village…
Discover the boat
Do you remember this place in the movie? Let’s discover the boat :)
Skull Island Village
Here you are! You make it to the village!
Be careful, they may catch you!
I’m just kidding!
They were super friendly when I was there. Those people acted in the movie, so the government offered them a job at this place. They will be happy to take some pictures with you, so don’t hesitate to ask them ;)
