Tam Coc, Ninh Binh
(4.1/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Explore an astonishing natural setting of limestone caves and karst rock formations at Tam Coc.

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. With our international travel planner, Ninh Binh attractions like Tam Coc can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Fun boat ride! Gorgeous views! Very relaxing. Lost a star for being touristy and being attacked by other boats halfway through trying to sell stuff, really pushing the sell. Anf the boat driver is very pushy on asking for a tip at the end. Also, they talk to each other a lot which kind of ruins the quiet peace of the river.
  • A great day trip from Hanoi!
  • Super. I recommend this afternoon when there is less crowded! Embarked on the last boat.
