Ninh Binh Travel Guide Information

Location: in the Red River Delta region of the northern part of the country

Area: 1,383.7 km2

Population: 1,119,845 people (2019)

Ninh Binh was once called Hoa Lu, the capital of Vietnam in the period of 968 - 1010 with 3 dynasties of Dinh, Tien Le and Ly.

Top Things To Do In Ninh Binh, Vietnam

1. Take in the tranquillity of Ninh Binh temples and pagodas

Ninh Binh is the land of temples and pagodas which are famous with both domestic and international tourists. The most popular sites are Hoa Lu - the ancient capital of the Dinh and the Tien Le dynasties, Bich Dong Pagoda - a special complex of three separate layered pagodas carved into the foot of a limestone mountain, and Bai Dinh Pagoda - a huge spiritual complex famous for the collection of 500 stone arhats and the 100-tone bronze Buddha. Make a visit to Ninh Binh temples and pagodas, then find yourself a peaceful time before joining other excursions.

2. Cycle around the rice fields & scenic mountainscapes.

Ninh Binh is one of the best places for cycling in the north of Vietnam due to its mainly flat roads and authentic countryside settings. Wandering through the small paths in immense rice fields or dirt roads winding to idyllic villages will definitely make your bike tours much more amazing than ever. It is very easy to rent a bike in Ninh Binh and many hotels could offer free for tourists. If you join a Ninh Binh tour, especially Tam Coc - Bich Dong route, cycling activity will be included in the itinerary.

3. Take a boat tour in Trang An and Tam Coc

Both Trang An and Tam Coc are stunning places to enjoy a boat ride on winding rivers, however each allures tourists with different charms. While the most attractive lure of Tam Coc boat trip is admiring amazing views of immense rice fields on the two sides of Ngo Dong river, Trang An is a huge scenic landscape complex of stunning valleys, limestone mountains, cross-water caves and age-old temples as well as the original backlot of the blockbuster Hollywood movie, Kong: Skull Island. If you have limited time in Ninh Binh, you could choose one of the two boat tours to enjoy.

4. Conquer Hang Mua peak

If you are into photography, Hang Mua peak will take your heart with amazing panoramic views and stunning Instagramable photos. To reach the top, it could be a challenge with about 500 stairs up from the ground, but it is totally worth a try when you get the gorgeous views from the surrounding peak. You can admire the entire landscape of rice fields below on Ngo Dong river of Tam Coc valley or enjoy a nice time taking spectacular photos near the stone dragon statue and age-old temple.

5. Get out into nature at Van Long Nature Reserve

Great for nature lovers, Van Long Nature Reserve is a perfect stop to discover Vietnamese wildlife just outside of the city (around 20 kilometres). Coming to this protected site, you will enjoy an amazing boat tour around the wetland and if lucky, see many endangered species of reptiles and monkeys. Another feature that definitely allures you to this reserve is its unique birdsong. The whole charming landscapes are teeming with local birds that make bird watchers feel satisfactory during the tour.

Best Time To Visit Ninh Binh, Vietnam

Ninh Binh is great to visit at any time of the year. If you’re into photography and love to see ripe rice fields of Tam Coc, the best time to visit is from late April to early June and from late September to October. June is a nice time to watch lotus and waterlily. You should avoid a September trip as the risk of the typhoon.
