Tips for exploring the best of Ninh Binh

Tips for exploring the best of Ninh Binh
Not only is Ninh Binh a sight for sore eyes, it is one of the best opportunities to see the rural way of living in Vietnam. The whole province is super relaxed, there’s barely any traffic, the roads are wide and flat, foreigners are few and far between, touts are minimal and it felt extremely surreal – just how the Vietnam experience should be. It was a breath of fresh air from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi, that’s for sure. No photos can do this place justice!

  • Some beautiful places of Ninh Binh highlights you must to experiences. We surely that this is the good chance for you to immerse yourself in the best landscape of Vietnam. Let's discovery this exciting journey !!

    1/ Tam Coc

    The area of Tam Coc, which means 3 caves, boasts spectacular landscapes and is no doubt the most visited attraction in Ninh Binh. The Vietnamese refer to Tam Coc as The Green Sea and we can absolutely see why! To best experience this area, there are 2 ways to explore it. Bicycle/motorbike or via a boat tour. Or both!

    Bicycle or Motorbike

  • Rent a bike from your hotel and get exploring! It won’t take long before you notice the intensity of the green absolutely everywhere (especially if you come in rainy season). There really is no need to take a tour to explore Tam Coc. The roads are flat and very easy to navigate, hence the reason I learnt to ride a motorbike for the first time here.

  • Don’t be afraid to head off into the tiny paths, wave at the locals as they plough through the rice, stop and watch the variety of animals (cows, chickens, ducks, wild horses) as they graze about in their natural habitat and most importantly, take a moment to take it all in! This is real life in Vietnam.

  • Boat ride:

  • Boat rides in Tam Coc run through the Ngo Dong River and start from Pier Van Lam. The 2-hour round trip takes you through caves, rice fields and past the ever so unique karst rocks. You will feel like you’re in a movie scene cruising down a natural kingdom like this.

2/ Trang An Grottoes

  • Our favourite part of the boat trip was navigating our way through the caves and by we, I mean the incredible skilful lady in charge, definitely not us. Some of these caves were so small we were forced to duck our heads. Not once did we hit the sides of the cave. Most definitely not her first rodeo.

  • We were slightly concerned how long we would be spending on here, our butts already becoming numb after just 1 hour but before we blinked, we were back at the start. Cudos to you lady! Time flies when you’re having fun.

3/ Hang Mua Peak


  • We’d be lying if we said we didn’t have a “but we have a drone” moment as we contemplated hauling our asses up to the top during the hottest part of the day but our guilt took over and we’re so thankful we did.

    If there’s one climb you should do in Ninh Binh, or Asia even, it’s the hike up to the viewpoint on top of the Hang Mua Caves. Don’t be put off by the steep 500 stair climb

  • Once you reach the top, the panoramic 360-degree views of the countryside, as well as the Tam Coc valley and of course the abundance of limestone mountains, are absolutely magnificent. On a clear day, you can really see for miles.

    The dragon that dominates the top of the mountain is one of the 4 sacred creatures in Vietnam along with the Phoenix, Turtle & Qilin (a combination of different animals). The Vietnamese dragon is known to be a symbol of Yang and is seen as one of the noblest and powerful symbols opposed to evil.

4/ Bai Dinh Pagoda

  • The Bai Dinh Pagoda is a gigantic cultural complex of Buddha statues and temples and covers 530 hectares of land. With its recent temple addition, it is now considered the largest pagoda in South East Asia. The attention to detail inside the largest temple was enough to pick your jaw off the floor.
