Trang An is absolutely a beautiful place! Do NOT miss this if you're in Ninh Binh--it has easily climbed to the top of our most awe-inspiring landscapes in Vietnam. Here's how our experience went: - We rented motorbikes from our hotel for $5. It's very easy to get to from the city center (max 15-20 minutes). - Parking at Trang... More

Trang an Grottoes is one of the must-see site if you come to Vietnam. Just 2 hour drive from Hanoi, you can visit one of the most beautiful attraction in the northern part of Vietnam. A three hour trip is not too long, or not too short. The rower were friendly, but they can't seem to speak English so i... More

When you get there it's 150k per person. You get on a boat and are takes through all different caves and also are able to walk to different temples. A brilliant day, really beautiful, everyone should do this if you come to the town.

Absolutely beautiful scenery, 3 hours was the perfect length of time and we made plenty of stops at various temples and little view points along the way, our guide spoke only in Vietnamese to the three other Vietnamese people in the boat so don't expect to learn much but it is still beautiful. Also, the local tourists were fascinated by... More

As the others have written, there is a touch of tourism, but it is awesome and a superb value for the money. I gave our guide a tip afterward. She was bright and full of stamina for a two-hour row through the grottoes (new word for me....). I could go on about how a few minutes in the boat melted... More

Amazing grottos catered mostly for the locals. As this entire compound is owned by a corporation, this place is very well run with no street peddler hard selling you their wares. Price is usd 5 per person and you can sit up to a max of around 6 people per boat. The journey throughout will take about 2.5 hours, which... More

Trang An has been changed to accommodate for large number of tourists. For example most caves have been widened and thus lost their natural beauty. The caves are illuminated by lights resulting in power lines slightly disturbing the atmosphere. Frankly spoken we visited another place called Linh Coc (just next to lovely Tamh Coc Garden Resort) after Trang An and... More

This was the high spot of our 3 week stay in Vietnam. It is beautiful and is called the inland Halong Bay. I can't recommend this highly enough. The women who row the boats do a fantastic job and are so underpaid. We gave our lady a tip for the 3 hours she spent rowing our party around

Trang An is often visited by rowing boat and a complete trip takes 3 hours. During the journey through Trang An, you will travel through 9 caves (some long, some short, some really hot and some really cool) and 3 temples (Trinh temple, Tran Temple and Khong Temple). The scenery of the nature of Trang An is just unreal. In... More
