Ninh Binh Tours

130km from Hanoi and 2-hour drive from Halong Bay, Ninh Binh boasts amongst Northern Vietnam’s most significant riverine landscapes. From here, visitors can easily access to pristine land of Tam Coc, Trang An and the ancient capital, Hoa Lu by paddleboat. Along the tranquil rive, numerous limestone mountains, once featured in famous blockbuster King Kong, rise spectacularly from underwater, creating an ethereal, picturesque scenery as quintessence of Mother Nature. The variety of historical relics, tropical forests and ecosystems is also a tremendous highlight for the boat trip. Finding forgone vestiges of palaces, temples, pagodas, tombs related to the three dynasties of Dinh, Le and Ly, trekking to fairylike Bich Dong (the second best cave of the South) or reveling in Cuc Phuong National Park should conclude Ninh Binh journey excellently.
