There are two boat tours lead to different areas to take a boat trip. Tam Coc is often chosen by international tourists, but I highly recommend visiting Trang An Ecotourism Complex instead.

Surrounded by endless paddy fields and by the karsts towering above, a row down this river is such a peaceful, serene experience. As the local women row the boats smoothly, you would be captivated by the natural beauty of the area at a gentle pace. An interesting fact is most rowers can lead the boat with both their arms and legs, using the extra power of their legs for the hour-and-a-half boat journey.

Known as the Ha Long Bay on land with towers of limestone just out above the waterways, but here in Trang An, the experience is just unique, somehow more personal.

Boarding a sampan, a small wooden rowboat, is also a more intimate way to experience your surroundings and yourself. With the water spreading just beneath you, cruise through darkened caves with low-hanging limestone ceilings. Watch the lesser whistling ducks patterned in black and white swimming in small flocks. Emerge from glimmers in the darkness to secret water valleys surrounded by lush rice fields and colorful flowers.

3. Live in peaceful rural space

After an amazing boat trip to discover the waterways of Ninh Binh, why don’t you get a bicycle and enjoy peaceful rural space? While in Ninh Binh there is an easy cycling route through the semi-urban villages, past scenes of the endless rice fields. You could easily spot limestone hills, graveyards, houses and a French-colonial cathedral just off the main street.

As soon as you get out of the “town”, you can see many tiny paths on the small dam between the ponds. Goats, buffalos, cows, as well as quacking ducks are literally everywhere. You can stop for a while and use your chances to take a deep breath and capture photos of the friendly locals and their cattle. Ninh Binh is truly a cycling paradise.
