May - have an appointment with Ninh Binh in the rice season

It's harvest time in Ninh Binh, the farmers are busy in the rice fields, the streets are covered with rice being dried out and the straw is being burned off ready for the next crop.  Rice is the main food source for Vietnamese people so as you can imagine we grow a lot of rice. In Ninh Binh we can harvest the rice two times a year except for some parts in Tam Coc where they can only harvest once a year.

Amazing at beautiful scene as in the movie

In June 2014, The populations of Trang An landscapes was recognized by UNESCO as cultural and natural heritage of the world, become the first mixture-heritage in Vietnam. Coming to Trang An, visitors will have special experiences is Vietnam, enjoy yourself with magnificent nature and cultural space that are imbued with ancient poetry and epic. 

Located at the edge of the Red River Delta, Trang An is a rare place which is still maintained long-standing rice cultivation. Rice plant here is only planted in fifth-month crop, ripened in late May to early June. These paddy fields are not needed to build up a dike by the farmers and cultivated right on Ngo Dong River. At harvest time, the villagers harvest rice when the water is high at the edge of half body in the blazing sun. Ngo Dong river bows between the shining yellow colour of the paddy field, as farmers hurry to harvest rice with small boats full of yellow rice.

A favorite experience of many visitors is standing on several small peaks of mountain protruding at the cave’s entrance to see busy harvest scenic. In these days, all Tam Coc looks dreamy light up, with serene flowing river, meandering between shiny yellow of ripen rice paddies. Boats slowly glide on the river, a beautiful and poetic mountains and water area appeared in the fresh air.

Ninh Binh is suitable for a short day trip, or can be accommodated to a 2 days 1 night in Ninh Binh if you want to make the most of every destination you go to. We truly agree that any time is the best time to visit Ninh Binh, for the view is always either vivid green, or warmly golden. It is a great alternative if you want to visit Halong Bay, but afraid that it is too crowded to enjoy the view.
