Tam Coc, Ninh Binh

4.0
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. Before you visit Ninh Binh, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • This is one of the most beautiful place I have ever experience. Nice boat trip . It’s halong on the land...  more »
  • Beautiful boat ride, we were lucky and there were many people, because a half day filled with much, the end before return are waiting for you a few boats to sell you things and take the opportunity to tell you to buy them drinks or food to the rowers (thus with la Peñita c SBU which buy them more) some barquero (like ours) we tried to sell halfway a few postcards. And as not to finish asking for tips. Otherwise lovely walk and beautiful place

  • Unique location at the Foothills...Nuang and other friendly staff are very accommodating
  • 1. The view is nice but that's all.. I arrived with the bus in Ninh Binh and took a taxi with another group to their homestay first. We agreed there on paying everything, also for my ride back to Tam Coc Homestay. Once I was there the taxi driver told me I had to pay again. I got angry,, (and afraid being in the middle of nowhere in the dark) but he knew the Tam Coc Homestay employee, they were talking some in Vietnamese and I had to pay another 180.000 VND instead of 200.000. 2. They have a pool but we couldn´t use it. 3. The food was TERRIBLE!!! See picture; there was a dead fly in my food and I got a huge bellyache from it! I had to walk through the kitchen to get my laundry and I was SHOCKED. Food was lying in the open with hundreds of flies on it. Don´t eat there!! Go to Father Cooking in the city, thatś a lot better. 4. Beds are way too hard, I booked the private room and lay on a spiral bed. 5. Only other positive thing was they helped immediately when I had only cold water in the shower. The guy fixed it within 5 minutes.
  • Had a nice dinner with locals and foreigners. They have heater in the room is a big plus!
  • The place is beautiful, located just under tbe outcrops, peaceful amd remote. Helpful with bookings and advice. The food really needs a loving hand though.
  • Ok, nice view, peace and close to Tam Coc
