The only interesting part of this 2 hour row-boat ride are going under caves, of which some are so low you have to lie flat on your backs. Not good idea for anyone with claustrophobia! The rest of the boat ride was too long and boring, on my opinion, and if it's a hot summer day, you'll be burning under... More

It is a wonderful experience taking a boat cave ride. For 3 hours at vnd 150,000, its excellent value for money. The experience of passing and manuveuring through 6 caves was unbeliveable & unforgetable...will return. Highly recommended. Its a 1.5 hour car ride from hanoi to trang an.

Trang An is Amazing and incredible , Very scenic and beautiful. Its actually the Halong Bay of the land. Carry your hat or umbrella (ask your hotel for it) and enjoy this great boat ride which takes you through a number of caves.

Actually, I booked a tour to Ninh Binh Province. This tour consist of Bai Dinh Temple and Trang An.. I found that Trang An is really sceneric.. It's look like Halong Bay and it has several stalagtit tunnel which quite cool because you have to sit lower so you didn't hit your head. In the middle of it, there're several... More

I had an amazing trip with my bff, the place is awesome, magnificent scenery. I and my friend enjoyed the boat trip going through the caves a lot, the water of the river is very clear, we actually could see the fish swimming around us, the seaweed feels like very near to us, such a wonderful peaceful feeling.

Not far from Hanoi but it is an ideal place to relax. I really miss its peaceful atmosphere and magnificent scenery. The thing I love most is open sky with overwhelming sunlight when getting out of each cave. Don't forget to bring a hat and camera.

The boat trip was good fun, you pay 150,000 vnd per person and 4 people can fit in a boat. We had a local lady as our rower, to which we felt very sorry at the end of the trip having rowed 4 heavy westerners about for 2 hours! The sights were great, the limestone features are as impressive as... More

This place is much more better than Tam coc and less turistic. The 2 hours boat trip is incredible, you pass throw huge caves snd you get to see the most wonderful landscapes. There is a temple in the middle if the water wich is precious!
