Ninh Binh is pretty much all flat which makes driving around fairly easy. And pleasant! Actually you could just wander around skipping all sights and the surreal backdrop for your drive would still make the trip worth it. I felt like in a movie set all the time!
Everyone addresses this place as the Hang Mua Caves, but to be honest the caves are nothing special. In fact if I had it skip completely, I wouldn’t have missed anything. Even the ones in Thung Nham Bird Park are better IMHO.
The boat ride in the Tam Coc rice fields are the main reason tourists come to Ninh Binh. The area is surrounded by hundreds stony outcrops similar to the ones found in Halong Bay. For this reason the area is nicknamed “Halong in Land”.
The whole province is an extremely low-key and amazingly scenic place, yet still not packed with tourists. It’s the perfect place to get to know the real authentic Vietnam.
Ninh Binh is a province in Northern Vietnam situated on the boundary of three geographical areas; Red River Delta, Northwest, and North Central. Ninh Binh City is the capital of that province. Its town is quiet, but it is a great base for exploring beautiful surrounding countryside.
