Ninh Binh region is one of the most beautiful parts of Vietnam with its dramatic scenery and historical temples. The rice fields here become other – worldly and the mountains have earned the area the nickname “Dry Ha Long Bay or Ha Long Bay On Land”, a moniker borne out by the limestone karsts which dominate the landscape.
After arriving in Tam Coc Town close to Ninh Binh City and have lunch. After lunch board your private sampan for a boat trip through the Thung Lang Valley which is off the tourist trail.
