Kenh ga is new place for tourist. there are no much things to see here. you will go thourgh Kenh ga by boat. See the local life beside the way. If you stay in Ninh binh more than 2 days, you can visit here. Not a must see , just an experience

We didn't actually go there as we were advised not to by a Vietnamese lady who had been the day before. She said she was really sick afterwards because it was just too hot even though she showered to cool down.

We enjoyed a cruise on an old river barge at Kenh ga. It was fantastic motoring though the villages and lives of the people and also into the upper reaches. Again, the scenery and rock formations were amazing. The swim at the island was refreshing afterwards.

Kenh Ga is supposed to be a floating village, but nowadays everyone lives in houses. People were rude and asked for money all the time.

Some of my best photos were taken in the late afternoon as I headed for the floating village in a (noisy) motor boat. I would have preferred the more peaceful rowing, but it would take much longer. Photos of ladies fishing, water buffalo, house boats, quaint village, rice fields with the karsts in the background. Very pleasant and no other... More

The experience of traveling by boat through the canal, among the rice paddies, was a fun experience. As was seeing the locals fishing from their small boats, rowing with their feet. The surrounding area is beautiful, but you need to take it with a grain of salt. This country is in the long, slow process of industrializing itself, but much... More

Ninh Binh is this sleepy town's transformation into a major travel hub in recent years has little to do with Ninh Binh itself.Although it is just about possible to visit some of these sights as a day trip from Ha Noi, many travellers sensibly prefer to overnight in Ninh Binh or the national park to absorb the atmosphere at a...

Like the taste of the life the villagers live as it happens on a usual morning. A community of villagers based on land and some on boats. There are boats of various types, from steel, to aluminium to concrete to rattan and wood. Families that live on boats. Even pig pens on boats.

After a motorbike day-tour organised by my hotel to Cuc Phuong National Park (20$), we stopped by Kenh Ga on the way home. The boat was VND 150k for 1.5hr, despite my guidebook listing it as VND 45k. I'd already done Van Long and Tam Coc, so decided to give it a skip. Driver then found a cheaper alternative, VND... More

The boat ride, villages, mountains, and overall surroundings are incredible--one of my top tourist experiences in the world. The Hot Springs advertisements can be misleading, as they show pictures of a giant, clean, covered set of pools. However, when we arrived on a weekday, these big pools turned out to be drained and closed, and they directed us to a... More
