Immerse your soul into the beautiful nature, find your heart relieved and peaceful with the poetic scene before entering Tam Coc – Bich Dong. A two-hour boat ride on the Ngo Dong River with Halong Bay on land tour will be an unforgettable experience.
Ngo Dong River is a magical river that takes you through Tam Coc – a popular tourist destination in Ninh Binh, 100km from Hanoi. Ngo Dong River passes through the limestone mountains, through 3 caves including Ca Cave, Hai Cave, and Ba Cave, making visitors feel like they are walking in another Ha Long Bay.
At the river, you buy tickets and then, you are arranged to the tole boat, staggered like the leaves close together along the Vung Tram boat landing. And so, each boat leaves the wharf when there are enough guests, most of the boat scullers are women, gently use the two paddles that control the small boat on the river as a fairy.
The two paddles were tied to the boat, the sculler leans back, using their legs to control the boat as their habit of doing so many years. The reason for using paddles is because the motorboat will cause noises and pollution for the river. And the slow boat coming to the fairy tale is enough for tourists to savor the special taste on the strange waterway.
Ngo Dong River has the strange name that makes us curious to find out. The answer is that the Ngo Dong River originates from the limestone range upstream, pouring water into the river system of Vac river near the Vung Tram bridge. Maybe, each year in the season of the rice harvest, the rice dyes the river into the golden color as the color of maize, so the name Ngo Dong (Cornfield) is used to call this poetic river.
On the river, in the season of harvesting rice, yellow of the rice fields flooded in the water along the river bank, the farmers harvesting on the golden has attracted people. Take advantage when the water of the river is dry when the river banks are full of alluvial soil, the farmer sowed seeds, and then the rice grows upon the water until ripen, dying the whole field.

There are about 1,300 boats to serve visitors on Ninh Binh cycling tour. Each boat can carry 4 people, and because the boats are too many, so the scullers have to wait from 4 to 10 days to row the boat.
