Ninh Binh Travel Guide: 50 reviews and 224 photos
I had no idea about Ninh Binh at the first time I heard this name from my friend who had only saw the picture of it from the guide book...finally we decided to go there and we were so lucky! First we asked for day tour but it's only on Monday-Wednesday and Friday...however we are 6 persons so we payed a little bit more and got private tour...we left HaNoi at 7.30am and Ninh Binh is located 90 kilometers south of Hanoi on Highway 1. While the town itself has little of interest for tourists.
A short-cut from temple to Tam Coc on bumping road we had lunch near by the lake (??? ---Im not sure it calls lake or not but it looks like a lake with a dock ) then three-hour sampan ride through the karst hills was a highlight of a visit to the area. The journey ends by passing through three long tunnel caves.
Not only going through the cave but the bridge also. more travel advice
When sampan passed the last cave --- it makes a U-turn and the other sampan with many soft drinks for sell is there---... more travel advice
