Ninh Binh (Vietnam) is a destination that will leave you amazed with its stunning scenery, quaint villages, and historical sites. And in your first time in Ninh Binh, here are the top things to experience:
Tam Coc boat ride
As you cruise on the clear river water, you will see the awe-inspiring landscape and a chance to see the rural religious sites hidden away from the view. This peaceful boat ride is the perfect getaway from the busy city life and offers you the chance to truly appreciate the wonderful nature of Ninh Binh.
Mua Cave (Hang Mua)
The hike to the top of Mua Cave can be tiring with 500 steps, but the view at the top totally worth it! Get on the top of the cave and enjoy the panoramic view of the mountains and fertile rice fields. If you go to Ninh Binh during the months of April – May, the weather is cool and you can see the breathtaking sight without sweating a bucket!
The ancient capital Hoa Lu
Nestling between 2 towering mountains is one of Vietnam’s ancient capitals – Hoa Lu. It was the capital during the 10th and 11th centuries. Most of the constructions – pagodas and citadels were all built in honours of the Dinh dynasty. This is the best place to learn about the history and culture of Ninh Binh.
Trang An grottoes
The giant grottoes are one of the most attractive spots for travelers when coming to Ninh Binh. It is a terrific system of valleys and crosswater caverns. Hop on a boat and ride along the expansive river networks. You will be greeted with extraordinary natural landforms, mystery caves and impressive riverside temples.
Van Long Nature Reserve
This is the largest wetland reserve in the north of Vietnam. You will find here pinnacles of limestone bedrocks and paddy fields that reach all the way to the horizon. The area is also home to many diverse species, including the endangered Delacour’s Langur. A visit to Van Long Nature Reserve is certainly a memorable trip.
