Ninh Binh represents a fascinating karst landscape with the most beautiful mix of limestone rocks, rice fields, waterways and pagodas. The area has a lot to offer, but your trip to Ninh Binh isn’t complete without a boat tour through this mysterious scenery. There are some possibilities, but to make it easy for you: choose Trang An. Our experience with the Trang An boat trip in one word? Sublime!

Perfect natural landscape

The Ngo Dong River winds perfectly along the towering and deep green limestone cliffs. Together they form a spectacular and dramatic landscape, with views that surprise you after every single turn. Floating through the hidden caves gives the journey a mystical touch. Just when you think it can’t get any more picturesque, some charming well-positioned pagodas even upgrade the sights.

Shine on scene

You literally find yourself in a stunning film set. Indeed literally, as the creators of the movie King Kong: Skull Island also realized that this scenery is nature’s perfection. Of all places in the world, they chose this one for the setting of their uncharted scenic but mysterious island.

This is without doubt the highlight in the wide area of Ninh Binh and Tam Coc and one of the most beautiful boat trips on Earth. It was amazing to have this beautiful valley almost to ourselves.
