Point of Interest
“Designated as a UNESCO protected world heritage for both cultural and natural values, Trang An is situated just 7 kilometers from Ninh Binh City and it is the highlight of your Ninh Binh trip. Known as Halong Bay on land, Trang An has the landscape as just dramatic as the former, yet it has something more – a tranquil, almost still atmosphere as if time here was stopped. To visit Trang An, you’ll go by the waterway. You’ll have to hire a boat with a local rower to visit Trang An. There will usually be a tour of some places around Ninh Binh from Hanoi. You can easily search for one on the internet or at the tourism counter around the old quartar.”

Cave
“Mua Cave ( Cave of Dance ) is very impressive with small grove of trees, but the main attraction is a 500-step trek to the pagoda at the top where there`s a simple altar to Quan Âm ( Goddess of Mercy ). Really spectacular views including Tam Coc cave ( see where the tour boats go! )”

“Pho might be Vietnam’s most famous dish, but bun cha is the top choice when it comes to lunchtime in the capital. Just look for the clouds of meaty smoke after 11 a.m when street-side restaurants in Hanoi start grilling up small patties of seasoned pork and slices of marinated pork belly over a charcoal fire. Once they’re charred and crispy, the morsels are served with a bowl of a fish sauce-heavy broth, a basket of herbs and a helping of rice noodles. ”
