Ninh binh

Hello,

Is it worth to stay in Ninh binh for the whole day? We have only 2 weeks and we are thinking about going to Ninh binh in the morning and then take an overnight train to Hue. Do you know is it possible?

Yes, it's possible if you take the 6.15 am SE7 train from Hanoi, arriving in Ninh Binh at 8.33 am and leaving on the SE5 at 6.06 pm.

Is it worth it? For the effort you have to put into such a short time in an area that has a lot to offer but places of interest are in general so widely spaced that one day is not enough, then no, forget about it.

Also, if you have only 2 weeks in Vietnam you might think a little more about the number of places you want to visit and the most economical way - timewise - of travelling from A to B and from B to C etc.

It is worth to stay in Ninh Binh for the whole day, but I would suggest to advoid Hoa Lu Tam Coc as these places are touristy.Kenh Ga and Trang An is better places to visit and these places are very beautiful for boat trip and cycling.

Cheers,

Nhung
