However, Ninh Binh is an amazing destination with great diversity as well as extremely traveler friendly. Let’s take a look at the top reasons that you should include Ninh Binh in your list of best destinations to visit during the Vietnam customized tours:

Stunning scenery

Ninh Binh is often described as the “dry Halong Bay” as it looks like Halong Bay with thousands of limestone rocks topped by dense greenery, but they are on land instead of water. Those mountains scatter around the city of Ninh Binh, with rivers flow through them and caves formed inside which are best explored by leisurely boat rides. While the mountains are found in the west and north-west, coastal areas can be found in the south and east of the province. Ninh Binh definitely has everything to offer for a perfect customized holidays in Vietnam.

Many choices for day trips

Though it is always better to spend more than a day to discover a destination, many travelers today do not have much time on their tour schedule. If you are short of time on the Vietnam private tours, Ninh Binh is a perfect day trip option from Hanoi or Halong Bay. Getting here early, you will have enough time to experience the beautiful boat ride in Tam Coc, Trang An or Van Long Nature Reserve and pay visit to some temples or pagodas in the area.

Exploring caves and grottoes

Ninh Binh is famous for the caves and grottoes that are formed both naturally and artificially inside limestone mountains. Trang An, Tam Coc or Thien Ha grottoes are the best places to the beautiful rowing boat through caves. Sometimes the caves are low and the rock formations are quite pointy so you may need to duck to make the way through. Another interesting thing with the boat ride through caves is the local peasants actually row the boat with their feet.
