Tam Coc and Ninh Binh, are cataloged as a hidden gem of northern Vietnam, and I had to discover it by my own eyes. If you come to Vietnam you have to include in your route, yes or yes!👌🏼From Hanoi you can arrive here by bus, the best websites to compare and book the buses are Vexere and Baolau🚎

BOAT RIVER TOUR FROM TRANG ANG
This is TOP of the best places in Vietnam. A boat trip on the river through these random rock formations, discovering lagoons and navigating through caves. The best option is to do it in Trang An Grottoes, to go soon in the morning to avoid people. There are 3 tours covering different areas, I did the Tour 2.
Come in and see! Enjoy and get surprised! This could say the sign at the entrance to Vietnam, because I had never experienced before, a nature as huge as the one I am living here🌿
This is Mua Caves, one of the most incredible places in Tam Coc and also in Vietnam. The entrance fee is 100.000D (3.8€) and if you come by motorcycle, try to park as close as possible to the entrance. The best is to come a couple of hours before sunset, to climb the 500 steps to the top, while enjoying the other views and perspectives, offered by this unique and magical place✨
The sunset from Mua Caves is another great reason to visit Tam Coc and Ninh Binh. Growing in popularity, reach the top to take a good position and enjoy a sunset that you will not easily forget🌤
BAI DINH PAGODA
Bai Dinh Pagoda is a huge complex with many interesnting temples that you can visit with a tour guide and its also possible to visit by yourself.
HOA LU CITADEL
BICH DONG PAGODA
Vietnam is captivating my being, as it had been for some time nowhere. I would not know how to explain what is exactly this feeling, so I only tell you to come here, and discover it by yourself👣It is interesting to learn about the place you are discovering, in order to have a more complete experience, in every way. The recent history of this country is marked by conflicts and tragedies, and perhaps that makes the love of its people as great as admirable. Because love, is always stronger than hate.

QUOC KHANH BAMBOO HOMESTAY
