Beautiful experience - very peaceful, with no hawkers. The caves are a very easy bike ride from Ninh Binh, along the main road but with very little traffic it's not a problem. Bikes can be hired from Chookies for $1.5 for the day. About 8km flat ride on tarmac road from the town. The caves are probably more suited to... More

We were there at 7.15 in the morning. We had the first boat this morning and were alone on the water for almost one hour. Because of the high water we just saw 4 caves, but it was nice. The boat trip was around 2 hours 20 Minuten. The landscape is gorgeus and very peaceful. We paid 130 dong/pax and... More

Great concept and none of the high pressure hawking that Tam Coc is famous for, but I would have preferred a shorter option. 2.5 to 3 hours was just too much of the same thing after awhile.

Wow! That is the only word what can discripe this beautiful experience. We where here early, arround 11.00, and the only one on the river. There was no sounds except the peddles hitting the water. We went through a couple of really narrow caves to enter lagoons where you can only come by this kind of boots. The trip was... More

I have no complain about the boat trip. In fact, it has a wonderful view of the mountains and the cave is unbelievable. The owner of the sampan boat is much nicer than the one in the nearby Tam Coc Caves. (I had a bad bad experience with the attitude of the people in Tam Coc). Any way, the boat... More

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.
