Ninh Binh is often called the ‘Halong Bay on land’, because of the many karst mountains that remind of Halong Bay. But to be honest, it’s way nicer than Halong Bay.
Ninh Binh, c’est quoi?
A town where there is not much to do. You come to enjoy the nature. In one day you can do three activities and fully enjoy the most beautiful nature of Vietnam. If you’re doubting to go: stop it. GO!
1/ Visit the Thai Vi Temple
Totally pretty, this temple. In this place, the first kings of Vietnam are honored. The glorious dynasty may be over, but you can still feel good here.
2/ Rent a bike and discover Ninh Binh
Ninh Binh is very quiet in terms of traffic, so don’t worry, cycling is super fun.
3/ Boat ride op de Tam Coc
Quite the highlight. You sail the whole Tam Coc, and everything around you is phenomenally beautiful. During the 1,5 hour ride, you see rocks of 200 meters high and rice fields pass you by.
