Ninh Binh Vietnam is not only well-known by Bai Dinh Pagoda, by the pilgrimage of people whenever the Lunar New Year comes, but also makes every visitor surprised by the pristine and picturesque landscapes, with majestic mountains, the poetic river, the endlessly vast paddy fields and the lagoon clear as a giant mirror. With such great things, Ninh Binh has become totally the best choice to enjoy the poetic scenery, the majesty of nature, not just for pilgrimages as before.
Just 93km from Hanoi to the south, it does not take a long time to plan to go to Ninh Binh on one day. If you are afraid to plan your trip, a Ninh Binh full day tour may be a great choice for you. If you are a person who loves backpacking, you can choose a passenger car as a means of transportation, but in fact, you can ride a motorcycle if you believe in your driving ability. The beautiful and rustic countryside of the North along the road is really worth for you to stop and admire (in case you have enough time).
Referring to Ninh Binh, many people will think of going to Trang An. Certainly, it is an amazing destination for your trip. Moreover, the eagerness when sailing along the river, admiring the scenery with the majestic mountain on two sides, vast rice fields really make you really do not want to miss.
It is difficult to describe emotions as the boat begins to leave the wharf, and in front of you is the high rocky mountains overwhelming your sight, the huge cliffs leaning on each other, all make you admire in astonishment before the beauty of nature.
Peaceful scenery with Casuarina “dancing” in the wind, the fresh green trees, the grasslands as beautiful as that in the film makes you sad when looking at them out of sight, but you immediately again rushed to admire the new beautiful scenery.
Thung Nham Bird Garden
Getting Ninh Binh, you must definitely visit Thung Nham Bird Garden. The whole area is wide, the landscape is clear with low bush. These bushes are home to nearly 40 species of birds with over 50,000 birds. Many visitors on Ninh Binh cycling tour who went here recounted that every 5 to 6 hour, the birds return to the nest, creating a beautiful landscape like watercolours painting, with magnificent mountains and white birds flying.
Van Long Lagoon
Located in Gia Vien commune, Gia Vien district, Ninh Binh province, Van Long Lake is extremely suitable for camping overnight, or simply for the visit to take the photo, enjoy quietness here. Van Long Lagoon is not a natural lagoon but formed from the embankment to prevent flooding. Van Long owns many beautiful caves, lotus ponds, and vast rice fields.
Specialty in Ninh Binh
Many people know about Ninh Binh cuisine with goat meat and scorched rice, so often only find these two specialities but overlook many other delicious dishes here.

In Ninh Binh there are goi ca nhech (nhech fish salad), mountain snails, sour fish soup and eel noodle which are excellent food.
