We spent 2 days in Ninh Binh, did the Tam Coc in the first day and Trang An in the second. Both different (Tam Coc shorter but through rice fields and Trang An longer and more caves and temples). My advice is to do both! Personal preference to Trang An

I've went by myself to the Trang An Grottoes and I had a great day! It's hard to buy the tickets because is full of vietnamese people in the same situation as you are, but once you have it, you'll enjoy the boat with friendly local people

The scenery at Trang An is really beautiful and going through small caves on a boat was also a really good experience. I took a motorbike and got there at 9 in the morning, when it was RELATIVELY quiet. Keep in mind that even at 9 am, there are a lot of people there. I had also read other reviews... More

This place is beautiful but it was an absolutely physical battle with the other tourists which are all vietnamese people. While trying to get a ticket for the boat there is no line. The people had me pushed flat up against the person infront of me and someone was pushed flat up against my back while everyone is wiggling and... More

Ninh Binh itself has amazing landscape with layers of mountains, divided by lengthy rivers, under a clear blue sky, and Trang An is the perfect combination of every perfections. Most tourists come to Ninh Binh on the day tour, in which they visit Trang An, Bai Dinh pagoda, etc before coming back to Hanoi or somewhere else. That's why you... More

Up there with the favourite moments of our trip. Recommend arriving very early and if only 2- just pay the extra and get your own boat. So tranquil and gorgeous. Being out there with no other boats made all the difference!

This is an attraction which will take a couple of hours to complete. You get to the site and board a canoe. You will need at least 4 people if you do not strangers in your party. The canoe "driver" (mostly women) will take you thru 10 caves, mostly very narrow and the longest with 300 m in length, all... More

Because of the reviews on TA we chose Trang An over Tam Coc and now think that was a big mistake! Yesterday we were at Tam Coc for a ride on the bikes. There are quite a few tourists but no crowds, 2ppl in 1 boat and the ticket office was empty. Today in Trang An we went for the... More
