Tam Coc, Ninh Binh

3.8
#2 of 17 in Things to do in Ninh Binh
Explore an astonishing natural setting of limestone caves and karst rock formations at Tam Coc. The geologic compound was created by the erosive powers of the Ngo Dong River, which many villagers use to irrigate their crops. Go on a sampan tour on the scenic river to photograph the surrounding natural marvels and get acquainted with the local way of life. Besides passing next to strangely shaped caves and vegetation-covered rock formations, you can also visit nearby pagodas and monuments.

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.
