Explore the hidden cave chains of Trang An Grottoes, a World Heritage Site preserving a huge natural rock garden in a vast lake near Nihn Binh. You'll enter the caves by boat, passing through cracks in the limestone hillocks, which are covered with lush green vegetation. During a popular two- to three-hour boat ride, you'll see dramatic karst scenery and a nine-cave network interconnected by flooded inland waterways, with many suspended stalagmites. This pristine area boasts high biological diversity, and you can even paddle your own boat around the caves. Tours usually include a visit to Ha Pagoda on Ngo Dong River, Bai Dinh Temple, and the old capital of Hoa Lu. By using our Ninh Binh journey planner, you can arrange your visit to Trang An Grottoes and other attractions in Ninh Binh.

Trang An Grottoes reviews
Well worth the cost and time. Enjoyed a very relaxing boat ride through amazing landscapes with many stops along the way. Very busy on weekends but we went during the week, much more peaceful. Highly.... more »
This place is seriously heaven on Earth! It is definitely not expensive, given that the boat tour takes 3 hours and the scenery is breathtaking throughout! We visited in October and took route 1... more »
An ethereally beautiful place. Waterways forming a maze among limestone hills. At times mysterious, at times serene. As you explore the realm by boat, you will pass through limestone caves and tiny... more »
More than 2 hours of peaceful boating. Thin and wiry women, patiently guided us through the waters, we saw temples, caves and amazing stalactites. Will never forget the experience. Memories to sustain through Covid-19 as we visited in February 2020
Very green and peaceful place with really cool weather. You should come here in autumn and spring. Not really crowded because of covid19. River is really clean and cleaner than other rivers in Vietnam.
Well managed tourist site, extremely high service level, clean toilets. As a solo traveler, I was allowed to purchase an additional ticket to have a private boat on my own to avoid waiting. Route 1&3 both 3 hours, route 2 is 2 hours.
This is why you come here. We took route one and no one was with us after 15 minutes. It was long and hot and sunny. Incredible though to float through caves and waterways and all the surround scenery. Each route takes you to three temples. Some require hikes up and down. Most are similar. If you like temples, they are fun to explore.
The boat tour was amazing! Amazing views for 3 hours. However the lady operating the boat wasn't so great. She asked me to fill in a service questionnaire and the second I finished she asked/ demanded 200k tip(very disappointing)
