Travel to Ninh Binh
Ninh Binh city, which is the provincial capital, is not itself a major tourist destination. The reason why most foreign visitors came to Ninh Binh Province is to visit the rural areas to the the south west of Ninh Binh, in particular Tam Coc and Trang An. These areas are famous for their spectacular limestone hills which are similar to the better known limestone hills rising from the sea in Ha Long Bay. What is different about the scenery in Ninh Binh Province is that instead of being surrounded by sea the hills border valleys with picturesque rice fields. There are also some submerged caves you can visit by boat and some great temples nestled in the hills. Tam Coc, and to a lesser extent Trang An, are busy tourist areas. The close proximity to Hanoi means a lot of tourist buses turn up mid morning and leave mid-afternoon. By staying overnight in Ninh Binh you can time your visit to avoid these crowds of people on organised tours.
The most popular activities in Ninh Binh are to take trips on small wooden boats through the submerged caves of Tam Coc and Trang An. The boat tours around the three submerged caves of Tam Coc are the province’s number one tourist activity. Some people doing this tour will feel the popularity of the area, and the hard commercial approach of the boat operators, takes away from the experience. Tam Coc is stunning but the area has become a mass tourist attraction. For this reason some visitors prefer the boat trip around the submerged caves and temples of Trang An which receives fewer visitors.
