Tripadvisor's Travelers' Choice 2021 has recently researched and evaluated reviews of travelers on a US travel website in the last 12 months to give out the 15 best nature and hiking activities in the world. Among them, the one-day tour from Hanoi capital to Ninh Binh province which takes almost 2 hours by car proudly earned a slot in the list.
Tripadvisor highlights the tour to Tam Coc – Bich Dong - the famous boat tour on Ngo Dong River lasting for 2 hours and offering a stunning view of limestone mountains and rustic rice fields. The entrance ticket to Tam Coc is just around US$5/person while the whole tour cost is around US$79/person.

Around 3- 4km from Tam Coc, Bich Dong Pagoda - the ancient pagoda amidst nature and Mua Cave which is regarded as the miniature of the Great Wall in China are also recommended. A 500-step climb to the peak of Mua Cave and travelers will never regret the breathtaking view of limestone mountains and rice fields.
Moreover, Ninh Binh has increasingly been known for its spectacular scenes in the Hollywood hit movie called “Kong: Skull Island” in 2016. This is a remarkable spot for nature-lovers when visiting Vietnam.
