Explore the 'inland Ha Long Bay'

The countryside surrounding Ninh Binh is likened to a Ha Long Bay on land. The karst formations provide a stunning backdrop for a network of waterways bordered with rice paddies. The waterways around Ninh Binh are also studded with historic pagodas and temples, including the historic settlement of Hoa Lua, once the capital of Vietnam. Bicycle or boat are excellent ways of exploring the area and allow you to appreciate the natural beauty and local lifestyle at your own pace.  Although, the best way to explore the impressive cave formations of Tam Coc is by a small, private sampan. You’ll have around two hours to relax as you gently glide past the verdant countryside of rural Vietnam.
