Should Go
Jan 2021
It is quite and gorgeous. There are 3 temples in Bich Dong Pagoda ( Low, Middle, High) You can easily find a way to the Low and Middle one. The third one, however, is hidden behind the middle temple. You need to find a way to Dark Cave, which is next to the Middle Temple (it quite hard to notice it) . Go along the dark cave until you reach the end of the road. Trust me, you won't regret. I think it really cool and worth it. Visit here if you have time. It Free by the way.

Should check it out if you have time

There is a small alley beside the small temple in the second picture which will lead you to a hidden temple in the cave. I found it really cool and it also will lead you to another temple.

Wonderful place

The place is beautiful, the stairs are sometimes scary but it's worth it. I was lucky to be alone there, usually, it's quite croudy

Decent Pagoda
Oct 2019
Bich Dong is worth going to if you have ample time in Ninh Binh but if you are short on time stick to the main attractions.
Overall the entrance is very cool and worth a few photos but the pagado itself is under whelming. The views are ok considering the walk up is slighly strenuous and time consuming.

Serene atmosphere

Very unadorned and humble pagoda that still has a monk living in/working from it. Fascinating peep into their everyday life, slightly spoilt by the people in your face selling highly over priced items

Was ok, nice views
Apr 2019 • Couples
Was alright. Apparently you can leave your bikes anywhere but we chose to leave them at the entrance and pay 10k per bike. Don’t try and ride them over the bridge into the pagoda... like some stupid tourists tried to do 🙄
It’s all a bit run down but has some nice views. You can walk around the back and up some steps for a good view. Be respectful and if it says don’t wear shorts in the temple DON’T WEAR SHORTS. It might not be religious to you but be respectful. So many people aren’t it’s disgraceful.

Interesting pagoda in wonderful scenery
Feb 2020 • Couples
We throughly enjoyed our visit here.

The pagodas themselves are set on several levels and I'd say that it's worth the effort climbing to see them as they themselves are interesting per se but the views of the surrounding scenery make it a double win.

I'd recommend a visit.

Peaceful

Peaceful temple overlooking rice fields. Access via a small stone bridge, then a few steps up the mountain. Once you reach the second sanctuary, continue around it through a cave unto the next flight of easy stairs. Beautiful view at the top!

Not much to see
Nov 2019
We biked here from our hotel, had to pay for parking at the entrance.
If you are willing to try, maybe park a minute walk from the entrance so you don't have to pay a parking fee.

The attraction itself was rather small, there wasn't much to see at all.
