“The extreme heat” of the movie Kong: Skull Island has helped Ninh Binh Vietnam suddenly “shining” on the map of Vietnam and became one of the hottest tourist spots for everyone who loves the movie Kong. The beauty of nature in Ninh Binh has been partly reflected in the Hollywood film.

In fact, if people are looking for a lively place with lots of bustling places to visit or go shopping, do not go to Ninh Binh!
