Sounds like a great trip! Been wanting to do some backpacking in Vietnam plus Cambodia, Thailand and Malaysia. Hopefully I’ll have time to see Ninh Binh!

What a beautiful place, such a shame that I completely missed it during my trip to Vietnam… a good reason to go back soon! 😀

I’ve never heard of the Hoa Lu Tam Coc tour before and now I can’t wait to go! Thanks for such detail post. I saved it to have all the info for when I plan my trip. Lovely photos too! ❤️

I do appreciate how you highlighted some “common sense” issues with the locals. We have also witnessed other travelers who did not handle conflict well, and it escalated from something so minor. It is important to remember to be compassionate, as it ultimately stems from the fact that they are just trying to make a couple of bucks. Thanks for the tips.

Beautiful photos! I really enjoyed learning about the caves, and I think going in them would be quite the experience. Thank you for providing the tips as well. I think travellers need to remember that people are just trying to make a living.

I love biking and the idea of doing it through rice fields sounds so dreamy! I’m so thankful for your writeups on scams. especially the point on avoiding boats with a box inside of it. I hate being upsold, it takes all the joy out of an experience for me.

Wow insanely helpful guide for anyone who wants to visit Tam Coc or Ninh Binh province! Also thanks for the warning with the photographers during the boat tour. Having this annoying experience of misunderstanding can really influence the way you think back about the experience. Glad you are warning for it in advance!

Wow thank you for your sharing! What an excellent list of places to visit! I want to add Bai Dinh Pagoda of Ninh Binh, that is the largest pagoda of Vietnam and it’s also very beautiful!
