The cave sate mindblowing and the women rowing the boats are so tough! Beautiful scenery and really breathtaking. We went on a day with no crowds, but judging from the amount of boats, I'm sure it can get really busy!!

Hired bikes from Ngoc Anh Hotel in nearby Ninh Binh and cycled here. easy bike ride and great views on the way. the grottoes are great and don't be put off by people moaning about tipping the rowers - why wouldn't you want to unless you were a real scrooge.

This tour was very exciting, seating on the small bamboo boat which was rowed by local people go along the river, amongst gorgeous limestone karts. Very peaceful feeling!

It's a must do trip if you are in the area and were were not once bothered by people trying to sell us anything. Just over £3 each for a two hour boat trip.

All we read is true. Beautiful serene and unique. Landscapes are stunning. Boat ride is great. Going through the caves is fun! We are couple and were there for our honeymoon. We ended up being put on a boat with other people who were part of a bigger group. Our boat stayed very close to their friends boat which was... More

We did group tour full day from Hanoi to Ninh Binh and time to visit Trang An tourist attraction is great. It's the same with Halong bay about limestone karts but not crowded. Sitting on a small bamboo boat was rowed by local people, go along the river, passing some dark tunnel...It's amazing moments!

Just beautiful and peaceful. I am in live with the area, and have been in three different boat trips, all of which are slightly different but highly recommended. Don't get put off by some people telling you how commercial it is, go and enjoy. The countryside is beautiful and the experience relaxing and left me wanting more.

Our wonderful Limestone View Homestay host took us here our first morning. He wanted us there by 10:30 AM to miss the really busy afternoon crowds. It worked great. Four of us plus the lady rower went off down the still rivers between majestic limestone karsts and forested mountains....and then rowed into small but long and beautiful caves going several...

It is a mixed of calming and scary experience for me. The boat trip was very nice, beautiful view of the mountain. We saw the mountain goat, chewing while standing on the cliff. Great to see the duck skipping and swimming on the water. The scary part was when we have to navigate the cave, especially the long one. Nothing... More

We visited trang an as part of an organised private tour booked by our hotel. Having a guide made accessing the activity much easier as he knew where to go for tickets and was able to provide us with information about whether we needed to help row or not and how much to tip. The landscape is spectacular and it's... More
