That was very probably one of the best things we have done so far. As it is still August, there were almost no tourists and we were alone on the lakes. It was a recommendations of our Guesthouse to come here as it is less touristy than Tam Coc.

Trang An Grottoes is one of the attractions that you must visit during your trip in Vietnam. The scenery of this place is spectacular with mountains, water and the old temples. It costs about 150.000 vnđ (7 USD) to explore Trang An by boat trip, you may see many fishes swimming under the water while crossing the 9 caves. Just... More

amazing boat ride and surreal experience. Was a hot and humid day, probably better done in the late afternoon when it's cooler

We enjoyed our boat ride very much. The water is really clear and the ride will take you into 9 caves. You can also stop at water temples and enjoy the scenery. The ride was 2 hours long, but really worth it.

Our favourite Ninh Binh boat trip. Amazing tunnels/caves. Friendly rower and we were not hassled for buying things. We gladly gave a tip to our rower but weren't asked.

Wow. We had a beautiful long boat trip visiting 9 caves as well as many other lovely places. Nearby there are also lots of other beautiful places to see. ...but don"t miss this great boat trip.

Marvelous sights and less touristy than Tam Coc. You sail 4 in a boat, so if you are only two, you'll have to wait for another couple to join. It takes somewhere between 2-3 hours depending on how much time you spend on each stopping point. Everything is all so pretty, so prepare yourself for a lot to take in.... More

When I heard the horror stories of how bad Tam Coc was for a similar tour I was skeptical that this one would be ok. I was pleasantly surprised by this very organised and tranquil tour. Buying tickets and getting our seat on a boat was very orderly. The tour itself on a small boat with just 4 people and... More

Read the title. When you stay near to Ninh Binh, you must visit this place. The boat tour costs 150.000 VND/person and lasts 3-4 hours. I can tell many positive things about this trip, but you can read this from other reviews too. However, since my mom could talk Vietnamese with the nice rowing lady, we get to know some... More

Went on a quiet day, it rained intermittently creating nice misty views. Bring your rain coat. Umbrella is cumbersome and obscure view. Didn't see any pushy sellers as mentioned in Tam Coc reviews. Kid enjoyed peddling. Perfect day trip bar the lunch which was fatty and salty so you might want to bring your own lunch.
