Mua Caves, Ninh Binh

4.4
#2 of 7 in Parks in Ninh Binh
Though not a particularly notable site on its own, Mua Caves boast unobstructed views that many visitors seek. Next to the cave entrance, follow a 500-step staircase leading up the peak. Once you arrive at the top, you will see another cave complex as well as southern Vietnam's limestone mountain. Many visitors like to come here at sunrise or sunset, but you can climb up at any time of day. If you prefer to only see the cave, you may want to bring a flashlight, as it is small and dark. Using our international travel planner, Ninh Binh attractions like Mua Caves can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Where to stay in Ninh Binh

A hub for travel throughout the province, Ninh Binh features a decent number of accommodations for a town of its size. Take a look close to the main train station for the town's most-frequented hotels. Standing in a cluster in this central area, they represent convenient options, given their proximity to the main restaurants, shops, and services. Over to the west of town, a selection of homestays provide interesting options among the karst landscape of Ninh Binh, with some refined, and others a little more budget-friendly.
