It is one of many famous tourist attractions in Nam Dinh. The monument was built to commemorate and reflect the spirit of the national hero Tran Hung Dao. The statue is 10.22 m high with a mass of more than 21 tons. Combined with the panoramic view on the Square over 1ha wide, it has contributed to increasing the beauty and respectability of the monument.

2. Pho Minh tower

It is an old architectural work that is still relatively intact. Located in the middle of a low-lying rice field. Pho Minh Tower was built in a square shape, including 14 floors. This is one of the remaining vestiges of a time of the Tran Dynasty ( 13th & 14th century)

3. Hai Ly church

The architecture of the church is designed very elaborately, beautifully and firmly with soft and flexible arched doors. The tall pillars support the entire structure. The fallen church is a ruined building that the people of Nam Dinh often call. Because the inside of the church has been invaded by the sea, demolished and devastated, only the outer skeleton remains with the foundation mixed with sea sand.

4. Hai Hau beach - Nam Dinh

The sea has a unique feature that many churches located close together on the coast have been abandoned due to the invasive erosion of sea water. Hai Hau coast has a length of about 33km with unspoiled natural beauty, not much impact of the tourism industry, so it is still quite quiet.

All resort services at this beach are well-invested, thorough and diversified. Tourists coming here can experience services such as dining, sauna, swimming, resting, outdoor sports activities..

1.Halong bay – the must-see place in Vietnam

Halong bay ( the new natural wonder of the world) is located in the northeastern area of Vietnam and in 2,5 hour car transfer to reach from Nam Dinh on highway.Halong bay is famous for its natural setting of 3000 limestone islands & islets on the emerald sea water, with natural caves & beaches around.

2. Ninh Binh – the peaceful & relaxed voyage to enjoy the limestone mountain landscapes

Ninh Binh is just next to Nam Dinh pronvince - 40km far from the center of Nam Dinh city.She is endowed with impressive chains of limestone mountains, rivers & national park.Thanks to this craggy topography, Ninh Binh was ever chosen as the capital on Vietnam in 10th & 11th century ( Hoa Lu ancient capital) in Dinh and Le dynasty.Your trip to Ninh Binh will be a big miss if do not taking nice rowing boat tours to explore Trang An Eco-Tourism Complex, Tam Coc grottoes, Van Long nature reserve….
What a nice view of mountain setting along the rivers with cave system & rice fields you can capture during the boat journey.Also, for panoramic view of Ninh Binh city & splendid mountains, it is our suggestion to do a short trek with proper steps to Mua cave.It is actually worth your effort especially in the time of late April-early May ( the time when the rice changes its colour from green to yellow).More time you have, it is great to discover Cuc Phuong national park with soft & hard treks, staying around with forest nature, bird’s songs & relaxation.

3. Cat Ba island - a famous place for beautiful beach, bay & national park
Cat Ba island is rich in a number of natural habitats that are aquatic and terrestrial. Limestone forests, mangrove grass, seagrass, caves, swamp forests, beaches, and lagoons compose the island's biodiversity. This is the reason why Vietnamese authorities have designated a national park. Island's southern portion is the most populous and is known as a commercial location. Additionally, there are many lodgings, restaurants, and bars on this land. With a huge number of nature-based events, Cat Ba Island has turned into Vietnam's tourism hub.
Good opportunities for trekking and climbing in Cat Ba National Park, renting a kayak or booking half-day or one-day kayaking and diving trips, watching the sunset directly overlooking the nearby islands, and Lan Ha Bay at Cannon Fort.

The villages are normally small and blend seamlessly with the environment. People mostly live in traditional houses on stilts, which are skillfully built using a combination of bamboo and timber with thatched roofs.The main trades in this undisturbed settling, weaving and farming, are now complemented by the tourism that the area attracts. The hospitality of the local families is one of the main charms of the area. The laid-back atmosphere of the environment seems to be an extension of the warm, easy going people that live there.
