翱翔的大鲨鱼Lulong Bay is located in Ninh Binh, about a two-hour drive from Hanoi. It is a well-known scenic spot that tourists will specially arrange to visit. The best way to travel to Lulong Bay is to slowly row a small boat with two people by the boatman, taking you through the winding river and carefully admiring the magnificent and vast scenery along the road. Limestone canyon terrain and exploring three mysterious and dark caves, watching the lotus leaves on the clear river, has a poetic and romantic atmosphere.
翱翔的大鲨鱼Bich Dong Ancient Temple, located in the Tràng An Chang'an World Cultural Heritage, is also known as Bach Ngoc Thach Son Dong (Bach Ngoc Thach Son Dong), which means the beautiful white stone pagoda. This ancient temple has a "three" style Construction, consisting of three unconnected buildings. According to the location of the mountain from low to high, it is divided into three independent temples, hidden under the ancient green trees in the Rocky Mountains. The lower tower is located at the foot of the mountain and includes five compartments. The central tower is located on the hillside, with only the temple gate and roof, and the rest of the building structure is neatly embedded in the cave.

In a big forest. There is no charge for the temple, and a charge for the battery car. Take the battery car for about ten minutes to the temple entrance.

Bich Dong Pagoda (Tam Cốc Bích động) is a three-tiered ancient pagoda nestled into a mountainside in Tam Coc, northern Vietnam. The cluster of cave temples is surrounded by a bed of water and impressive water lilies that will have you in awe when you arrive.
Getting around Tam Coc is really simple as it’s very easy to rent a bicycle or a scooter from your choice of half a dozen rental shops in the center of Ninh Binh town.
It’s approximately a 5-minute ride on a scooter from the town center to reach Bich Dong Pagoda. Scooter rental costs around 100,000 VND per day and bicycle costs half the price.
The entrance to Tam Cốc Bích động is absolutely beautiful and the most photogenic spot at this location. You will see an arched concrete walkway that stretches over the water lilies and makes its way through an impressive temple gateway and into the mountains.
There are around 100 steps to reach the top of the mountain and this is where Bich Dong Pagoda can be found.
The trail cuts through a large cave in the mountain where looming statues and small bats appear behind the haze of incense.
When you reach the top of the stairs, you’ll be welcomed with a stunning view out of the valley of the distant mountain peaks and vast rice fields.
Here is the entrance to the Bich Dong pagodas in the Ninh Binh Province in northern Vietnam. Not only is it remarkably beautiful, but it is also rich in history and culture. In the early 18th century, the two monks Tri Kien and Tri The built the Ha Pagoda, the Trung Pagoda, and the Thuong Pagoda, situated respectively at the foot of the mountain, in the middle of the mountain, and on the top of the mountain. The one who wants to see them will have to take the stairs connecting the three pagodas.
In front of the Hoa Lư Temple area, we are presented with views of the river and small Vietnamese boats with a high background of karst hills typical of mainland China.
Going inside a little bit, we could see a large area like a square on the outskirts of which there were gentlemen who rented out buffalo as the object of the photo. I don't know why that's the case, I didn't even ask.
it is said that Hoa Lư was once the seat of the Vietnamese government. In this area there are Nhat Tru Pagoda and 2 temples dedicated to warlords who have served in Vietnam, namely inh Tiên Hoàng and Lê i Hành.
The two commanders became famous for their actions against several Chinese soldiers from the Song Dynasty, defeating them and separating themselves from China. They then crowned themselves kings of their new country, i Cồ Việt, modern North Vietnam.
In the 10th century, Hoa Lư was the capital of i Cồ Việt which was the territory of the Kinh dynasty which constitutes 90% of today's Vietnamese. Whereas Central & South Vietnam used to be included in the territory of the Champa Kingdom, it contained people who were influenced by the Indian Hindu kingdom and worshiped Shiva. Although Champa was eventually wiped out by the Viets, racial tensions between north & south still persist to this day. The Vietnam War between the north & south was a power struggle for control of Vietnam in the 1960s – 1970s and ended the war with America and the defeat of the south. The Kinh people & the northern kingdom of i Cồ Việt effectively became a vassal state of China & represented the southernmost province of China by inheriting the culture, religion and English language.
Today Hoa Lư is no longer a place for anti-Chinese people to gather but as a stop for a trip to Tam Coc.
Trang An is a major tourist destination in Ninh Binh province, northern Vietnam. This spectacular natural landscape is dominated by limestone mountains filled with green trees between rivers, similar to those in Ha Long Bay. No wonder Trang An is dubbed as Ha Long Bay via land.
Trang An consists of a stunning collection of lush limestone mountains, rainforest lands, valleys, caves under the mountain and the historic site of Hoa Lu. There are also several temples and pagodas that you can visit here. You will feel as if you are lost in nirvana.
This is where Vietnam's old capital, Hoa Lu, was located in the 10th and 11th centuries. At that time this collection of limestone mountains became the perfect fortress to ward off royal enemies. History says the Chinese empire tried to control Vietnam by attacking the capital of Hoa Lu in Trang An. However, due to its unique location and surrounded by limestone mountains, China's efforts failed.
with all its natural beauty and historical value, it is appropriate that Trang An was made one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2014. In addition, Trang An is also called an outdoor geological museum because the collection of limestone mountains here has existed since 2500 years ago.

Ninh Binh is a town to the southeast of Hanoi that serves as a base for travellers looking to explore the area. The state is also known as Ninh Binh, with Ninh Binh town serving as the capital. As a result, when people refer to this part of Vietnam, they are usually referring to the entire Ninh Binh district, which includes several towns, villages, and major tourist attractions.
There aren't many attractions in Ninh Binh proper, but it's a terrific place to visit if you want to get out and about in some of Vietnam's most beautiful and unspoiled areas. The town is mainly used as a jumping off point for Tam Coc, Van Long, and Hoa Lu, and while it is not as well known as other areas in the country, its rocky limestone scenery makes it an excellent spot for anyone interested in nature.
Ninh Binh in Northern #vietnam
Beautiful Ninh Binh might less known compared to Halong Bay but it is worth a visit.
Travelers can take a slow and scenic boat ride through a river with limestone hills at the side and paddle through several underwater caves. The entire journey back and forth this timeless place takes a 1-2 hours and the scenery is awesome throughout.
Best to get there via a tour as it takes you to many more scenic places along the way including visits to historical places, padi fields and hike up a hill.
